Residential Support Assistant


Job Description

I am working very closely with a Residential School for pupils with Special Educational Needs. They require Support Assistants ASAP to work 1:1 with the students in their living environment. You will need to assist them with their daily duties whilst also helping them to be independent. You will need to be passionate about working with SEND Students and be driven to want to help them succeed. You must be flexible to work either morning, evening, double or night shifts, and must be able to easily commute to the School. You may be required to undertake minimal personal care, so this is something you will need to be able to perform should you be required. The School is commutable from Doncaster, Sheffield, Rotherham and other surrounding areas, so be able to drive is desirable. As some of the students who attend this school are over 18 you would be required to have an Adult & Child DBS on the Update Service, or be willing to apply for one on registration with us.

  • Have a passion for working alongside SEND students and supporting them in their day-day life

  • Minimal personal care

  • Have an Adult & Child DBS on the Update service or be willing to apply for one

  • You must have experience working with SEND pupils

  • You must be prepared to face a different shift every day – as you will be caring for Children in their living environment
  • Care or Childcare qualifications are desirable but not essential


In return PK will offer you –

  • A competitive rate of pay

  • A personal consultant that will work tirelessly to get you the job and shifts that best suit you

  • Constant support wherever you may need it

  • CV and interview advice
