We are looking for a Team Leader to join our day team at Robins, our 10 bed Residential and Respite Home in Dartington.

Children and young people with learning disabilities and their families are at the heart of everything we do and we want every person we support to have a great life, with excellent outcomes. As part of that, you will be joining our team of staff who are committed to looking after the children and young people who both live in, and visit, our residential and respite setting.

As a Team Leader, you will be managing, supporting and guiding a team of daytime Support Workers who strive to deliver quality care whilst making a difference to all our children and young people. As well as leading your team, you will also be responsible for actively safeguarding and promoting the welfare of the young people in the home.

Ideally, you will have previous experience in this sector and must hold a Level 3 Diploma in Residential Childcare (or equivalent).

Defined as a “Good” provider by Ofsted, Robins are looking for “Outstanding” staff who will deliver support in a professional, caring way. In return, we can offer an excellent range of staff benefits including 28 days’ annual leave, a company pension scheme, childcare vouchers, staff discount scheme, ongoing training and supervision, continuing professional development and support, as well as an extensive induction on commencement of employment. Lifeworks are also accredited Disability Confident Employers.

Lifeworks is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young adults and we expect all staff to share this commitment.
