Child Care Practitioners – near Loddon and Beccles

Gap Healthcare are looking for Child Care Practitioners to support a dual registered children's home and educational settings (one near Loddon, one near Beccles), on a temp-to-perm basis. 

The benefits of being a temp Child Care Practitioner with Gap Healthcare include:

  • Flexible hours
  • Simple booking system via an app, or speak to our friendly team
  • Free uniform
  • Free ongoing training
  • Full or part time hours to suit
  • Temp of the Month reward scheme
  • Out of Hours service
  • Access to permanent opportunities
  • Weekly pay
  • Enhanced rates for weekend and Bank Holidays
  • Paid annual leave and pension contribution
  • Quick registration process via our online portal

Each home can accommodate up to 8 children, all with social, emotional and mental health complexities. Successful candidates will be working for an organisation with a radical and innovative approach.

You will need to be qualified in English Language or Literacy to a Level 1 standard and hold a full UK driving licence. Staff working in a children's residential setting will be supported in completing a Level 3 Diploma in residential childcare, ensuring it has been completed within two years of employment.

As the homes provide care and nurture for children 24 hours a day, the position involves working shifts (with occasional paid sleep-ins and overtime). The shift pattern is over four-weeks and is based on a 37 hour week. Due to the nature of the role you will be required to have your own transport but parking is always available at both sites. The two homes are within 3.5 miles of each other, providing great opportunities for shared professional development.

If you have previous experience working as a Child Care Practitioner within a similar environment, and can get to these areas, we’d love to hear from you!
