We are looking for a Residential and Edge of Care Hub worker to work within the
No Wrong Door Hub in Harrogate. These posts support the Portfolio Leads (shift
leaders) to proactively provide the support and interventions young people need
so that they can achieve the best possible outcomes in life.


The post holder will be responsible for the direct day-to-day care of young
people within a residential home accompanied by other supportive tasks and
duties. Additionally, the post holder will also provide support to young people
on the edge of care, accommodated in the various other hub placements, and care
leavers (including post 18 living in the community).

The post holder will work
within a defined culture and intervention practice model and will adopt a
solution focussed and restorative approach.


This is a challenging position that will be suited to a flexible, resilient and
positive applicant. As a designated keyworker for a range of young people
receiving support from NWD, you will work as part of a 24/7 rota including
evenings and weekends on a rota basis.
Key working is integral to this post; working ‘with’ young people to develop
their resilience and life skills to enable them to successfully manage the
transition to independence.


Key characteristic requirements of this post are:
flexibility, commitment, building effective relationships, resilience, persistence
and the ability to progress plans for young people.
All staff will have a commitment to integrated working involving good
interagency working that requires positive relationships with partner services,
agencies and organisations.


You will work closely with these young people to support them and their
families using a range of tools and interventions. This role is critical to
building relationships and trust with the most vulnerable and complex young
people in North Yorkshire – and will ‘stick with’ each young person through
some of their most challenging points in their lives.

Voluntary Living Wage

It is acknowledged that cost of living pressures are difficult for everyone and there are a range of offers and support available to all staff, some of which are referenced http://nyccintranet/news/cost-living-pressures-update . National pay negotiations for the 2022/23 NJC pay award are unlikely to conclude in the near future. To support the workforce Management Board have worked with UNISON and agreed for this financial year (2022-2023) that employees in Grades A, B and C who are currently paid on spinal points 1, 2, and 3 of the NJC pay scale will have their basic pay increased  to match the Voluntary Living Wage (currently £9.90 per hour). This will be paid in June with arrears backdated to  1st April 2022. When the 2022/23 pay award is agreed, if,  as we expect, the national pay award increases pay to above this level, then the new pay from the pay award will be applied.
