CSE Young People's Worker : Residential Setting : Day and Sleep-Ins

The Magdalene Group has been supporting people affected by sexual exploitation for over 23 years. We have built an excellent reputation for engaging those hardest to reach, whilst delivering well-run, evidence-based programmes to suit individual needs. Our expertise makes us well placed to recognise the routes into sexual exploitation, provide effective prevention, early intervention and services for those affected. We are constantly striving to adapt our services according to the needs presented to us.

EnRoute is a new aspirational and therapeutic supported accommodation service for females, aged 16 – 18, who have been affected by child sexual exploitation. We are seeking an exceptional staff team who can deliver this cutting-edge work, deal effectively with challenging situations and behaviour, build sustained positive relationships and provide the best possible outcomes for young women as they transition into adulthood.

Our approach is to safeguard young women in a community setting, where they can learn how to manage risk, receive specialised therapeutic support and develop self-esteem, whilst living somewhere welcoming, nurturing, homely and safe. We aim to build positive relationships to provide opportunities for the future.

We are pleased to soon be opening our first home for two young women, with a second and third home planned over the next year.

We are seeking highly dedicated support workers with a proven track record, who can support the development of this innovative, caring therapeutic home; who have a thorough understanding of the needs and to provide the best possible outcomes for young women, ensuring that robust safeguarding and health and safety needs are met.

Up to 48 hours per week including sleep-ins.

Salary £18,000 – £21,000 FTE, plus 5% pension.
