The role of the Project Worker is to provide a warm, caring and nurturing experience within a residential setting. You will be responsible for the growth and development of five children, aged five to eighteen years, who have experienced significant trauma in their lives. You will function in accordance with the Company Policies and Procedures. You will also be accountable to the Project Manager and thereafter the Board of Directors.
The objective of all Project staff is to provide a residential experience which will be a significant stepping stone for the children prior to their teenage years. This will be achieved by forming positive and appropriate relationships with the children, their families and the professional teams who are responsible for the children.
The Statement of Functions and Objectives provides a greater understanding of the work of the Project and you will be expected to be familiar with this document and all other Company Policies and Procedures.
To achieve the above objectives Project staff will need to have the ability to carry out the following tasks and duties, and function at a high level of professional practice. These duties will be carried out in conjunction with the Project Manager and on behalf of the Board of Directors.
While the duties of our staff are far too numerous to detail, we have focused on the more obvious aspects of the functioning of a Project Worker.
You will be able to communicate positively and effectively with traumatised and vulnerable children and their families and carers, in a manner that is respectful of their abilities.
You will be able to communicate appropriately with other professionals, both verbally and through relevant letters and reports.
