This private family is looking for a family support worker focused on behavioural management with numeracy and literacy skills, to work with their two children aged 10 and 14. The ideal candidate will be positive and patient and have experience working with children with challenging behavior within a private setting. A background in youth work and working with foster and adoptive families would be beneficial.

You will be skilled in establishing boundaries and encouraging positive behaviour in the children, for example encouraging them to do their chores and take care of their own belongings. Key to this position will be the ability to unlock the children’s potential and promote their independence.

Duties will include organizing and accompanying the children to extra-curricular activities and helping with homework. The support worker will liaise with other professionals who work with the children and also take sole charge for long weekends two to three time a year when the parents are away.

This exciting position will suit a compassionate, spirited and experience candidate who will guide these lovely children through their teenage years. This is a great opportunity to work with a loving family to unlock the children’s potential and promote their independence.
