Hollybank Trust, founded in 1954 has achieved a reputation of attaining very high care standards, working with children, young people and adults who have profound and multiple learning disabilities and complex needs. Due to the expansion of our children’s services, we are now looking for some excellent new people to join our teams in Brambles and Orchard Court in Mirfield.
Brambles is an 8-bed home for younger children with profound and multiple learning disabilities. At Brambles, the vibrant and enthusiastic team love to foster a fun and vibrant environment, promote skill-building, and celebrate achievements – and they’re also not shy of a good karaoke party! This is an active and busy environment but also a lot of fun.
Orchard Court is a 7-bed home catering for more mature children and young people. The well-established and motivated team focus on promoting independence and preparing our young people for adulthood. Cinema nights, themed party nights, and accessing the community are a favourite at Orchard Court, and although the role can be challenging at times, it is highly rewarding and the team work hard together to overcome obstacles and find ways to help the children and young people to achieve their goals and dreams!
What we look for from our staff:
- Confidence – being self-assured, asking for help when you need it and challenging behaviour or practices that you feel are inappropriate or unsafe.
- Curiosity – being inquisitive and welcoming change, asking questions about the way that we do things and why, and putting yourself forward to try new things.
- Happiness – being cheerful and positive, bringing your best self to work and sharing your enthusiasm for life with the people we are here to support.
- Kindness – being caring and compassionate, reaching out to your colleagues if they look like they’re struggling, being an active member of the team and working together to achieve shared goals.
What we offer:
- A competitive salary and great pension scheme.
- Paid pre-employment training to give you a great head start.
- An employee rewards scheme with retail discounts and more.
- A comprehensive employee assistance program, including support for mental health, a company sick pay scheme, and a life insurance benefit.
- A fantastic, open, and supportive working environment.
- Training & Development opportunities to support your development.
- A wealth of opportunities to gain experience in a variety of skills.
