Job Published: 18 days ago
A special needs school in the borough of Lewisham is currently recruiting for classroom-based carers to join their team on a long-term basis to work with pupils who have special needs including autism.

Although care experience with children with complex needs is preferred, experience with adults with challenging behaviour, autism or dementia is also considered. Due to the needs of the children, you must be confident with varying levels of personal care and be happy working with children with different levels of cognitive ability.

To be considered for this role, you must:

- Be available immediately, five days a week (Monday to Friday) 08:30 - 16:00 for a minimum of six months, ideally until at least July 2022.

- Have a current enhanced (child or child and adult) DBS on the update service or happy to apply for one through us.

- Have at least three months experience working within a care setting within the last two years (excluding the lockdowns of COVID 19).

- Have experience working with challenging behaviour.

- Be a confident, resilient and calm individual.

Due to the current recruitment needs of the school, applicants must be available immediately pending their clearance so applicants will be automatically unsuccessful unless they can start immediately.
