At Pebbles Care we are looking for employees who want a vocation and not just a job. We are looking to recruit enthusiastic, child-centred Residential Child Care Workers to help us look after children and young people who are not able to live at home, via a varied shift pattern including sleepovers. The role allows you to be involved in all aspects of the lives of children and young people as any parent would e.g. transporting them to school, college or appointments, making their home a clean, warm and cosy environment, cooking meals, and encouraging participation in local activities and hobbies.

Our children and young people often have experienced trauma and early years attachment difficulties. We need you to offer them understanding, through meaningful relationships aimed at keeping them safe and able to enjoy the world around them. We need people to listen to them and to take in to account their views, wishes and feelings. The role can be challenging and requires 'stickability’ especially when, at times, their behaviours show that they are unable to cope. However, the personal rewards are immense.


  • A starting salary of £21,148 per annum, this includes a minimum of 1 sleepover per week. Your earning’s have the potential to increase significantly the more sleep shifts you complete.
  • Cash Plan - Dental, Optical & Therapy, in addition to 100’s of online discount vouchers
  • Death In Service Insurance
  • A comprehensive induction.
  • Regular supervision.
  • Training to support all aspects of the role including our own 'Therapeutic Parenting’ programme for staff.
  • Opportunities to achieve relevant and necessary vocational qualifications i.e. NVQ Level 3 (or SVQ Level 3 and HNC).
  • Opportunities for career progression.

Children and young people have a right to a positive childhood. If you would like to work in an environment where you can help can make this happen, then please contact us to request an application form and detailed Job Description.
