Working
with us

 

We believe that it’s the quality of the people who work with us that sets us apart – their energy, commitment, skills and burning desire to make a difference to young people’s lives.

We value our staff, invest in them and promote improvement and we're small enough to give you a real chance to influence and achieve.

 

Professional development opportunity

At Young Futures we are committed to delivering the highest standard of care to our young people and we invest in our staff to ensure they are appropriately qualified.  To deliver on our commitment we support all our full-time staff to complete the Children, Young People and Families Practitioner Diploma.

This Ofsted recognised qualification is considered the gold standard for practitioners. To help you achieve this we offer a personal tutor, dedicated study time and a £1,000 study bonus.

 

 

Current career opportunities

 

 

We’re looking for kind, energetic, passionate and fun individuals who love a challenge, have some experience of working with young people and want to make a big difference

Registered Team Manager

Full time

The job

We have a strong track record in providing excellent semi-independent provision to young people aged 16+, and in scoring outstandingly in all service reviews. Our plan is to register with Ofsted and support children aged 14-17 years old.

Whilst we have a stunning, modern, purpose-built, all-female therapeutic unit, Yvonne House in SW8, our greatest asset is our people.

We are looking for a forward-thinking, passionate and authentic Residential Team Manager to manage Yvonne House and help prepare for Ofsted registration later this year.

 

 Do you have...

  • At least 2 years’ experience of managing a team in supporting young people (as a Manager or Deputy Manager).
  • Good working knowledge of relevant policies; our key external regulator Ofsted; and experience in meeting Children’s Home Regulations and Quality Standards. 
  • Ability to facilitate a culture of self-advocacy and co-production that best enables young people to have their voice heard.
  • Good working knowledge of the impact of trauma and secondary trauma.
  • Please note that if you do not have the Level 5 Diploma you will be expected to achieve this within the timeframe set in the Children’s Homes Regulations.
