The role will require assisting female students to dress and undertake personal hygiene, therefore we strongly encourage female applicants.

Shift hours available are usually between the hours of 7am–8.45am and 3pm–10pm. There may be some sleep – in duties available. We are looking for a Casual Residential Worker who has excellent communication skills, with a good knowledge of D/deafness, communication difficulties, positive behaviour management and additional health and educational needs. Experience of personal care support is preferable.
