At Care in Mind our homes are always a hub of activity and energy where the young people can feel safe, and our staff enjoy coming to work. Your role will involve working with our young people to promote independence through support with education, household tasks and general life skills. You will also update online care records and complete medication administration. In addition, you will be responsible for the general upkeep and tidiness of the home ensuring the young people live in homely environment.

At our new home in Leeds, you will be working with young people who have diagnosed eating disorders, alongside a variety of mental health diagnoses. Our young people often use self-harm and compensatory behaviours as a strategy to cope with their emotions. Your role will be required to support the young people through their eating complexities, including meal support, food and fluid documentation and post meal support. You will also support and help to manage incidents of self-harm and other risk-taking behaviours. Some of our young people have physical health concerns which require close monitoring and documenting - full training for this is provided. A number of our young people are preparing for independence too, to move on from the home into the community. Therefore you will be supporting this transition through things such as: discovering different education routes, accessing public transport and appointments independently and supporting them to self-administer their own medication. Our young people are all unique and have different interests, they engage in a variety of activities including going to theme parks, pottery painting and watching theatre plays, so there will never be a dull moment when you are on shift.

Previous care experience is not essential and full training will be provided. You will receive ongoing support and mentoring from our friendly residential and clinical team.

The job is highly rewarding and a great start to developing your career working with young people or enhancing your previous experience of mental health with the opportunity for excellent career development.
