Richmond Carers Centre – Young Carers Service has opportunities for sessional workers for our after school groups, school holiday trips and activities. The activities are for young carers (aged 5-17 years) who have a family member with a physical or learning disability, mental health condition, substance misuse problem or long term illness. The activities offer young carers the opportunity to meet other young people in similar situations and to have a fun break from their caring role.
We are looking for enthusiastic and committed sessional workers, willing to get involved in activities – active, creative and outdoor games – who are sensitive to the needs of vulnerable children. It is vital that you are confident interacting with young people and able to adapt to new situations. Experience of working with children or groups of young people is essential.
Becoming a Sessional worker is a good stepping-stone into a career working with children and young people, and social care.
