Alexandra House Family are recruiting!
The home manager and the team at Alexandra house are amazing and that’s why you should work here!
In all seriousness, they have all worked extremely hard to create a welcoming, warm and nurturing environment for the children they support. The team empowers children and young people to overcome their daily challenges so they can live a life they love.
The people in our work family do a special type of job and can even be described as developing the superpowers of the young people who live here. Once these children and young people find their spark, we can help them to get through the difficulties they have faced and get them back on track at home, at school and sometimes with family.
At Alexandra house we love to take care of the garden, get baking– we love a cupcake! Not forgetting party starters, pumpkin carvers, Christmas decoration makers, competition enterers… the list goes on!
We want the best for everyone we support and that's what makes us a family. If you have the ability to support someone to feel at home, be their true self, and do what makes their heart happy – we want to hear from you. This is a meaningful role and will suit someone who is looking to make a difference and make memories and friends to last a lifetime.
We know our staff put 100% into building brighter futures for the individuals we support. That's why we offer career progression no matter where you start in the organisation. Your progress here will be regularly reviewed and as you gain expertise your rate of pay will increase. We believe in creating a Career from Care and we want the support workers we recruit now to become our managers of the future!
In regards to benefits, at Salutem, any day can be a payday. That’s right, you can withdraw up to 30% of your wages via Wagestream, so if you need some cash, we’ve got you covered.
As a keyworker in the Care sector, you’ll qualify for discounts with a Blue Light card and we’re signed up to Perkbox which offers over 200 exclusive perks and discounts. If you qualify for a pension scheme and choose to opt in, we’ll support you to pay into this. We also have a healthcare scheme you can opt into that looks after you when you need it most.
We enjoy using our internal staff communications app, Blink, where everyone has a voice and can lean on each other for daily support, and celebrate success too.
We hope this gives you a little glimpse into this role and vibe of our organisation.
So if you have a brilliant sense of humour, you can see the bright side of a situation, and you’re willing to share some good times with young people who need someone to help them through a tricky time – have a think about joining our work family and make a difference to someone's life.
Please note, due to Ofsted regulations you must be aged 23 or above to be considered for this role.
