Are you a motivated individual, looking to build the first steps of a successful career? Do you want a job you would hate to leave? Do you seek a job role which offers high satisfaction as well as the opportunity to develop your skills and experience? If so, we have the perfect position for you!

Our Client is looking for a Care Worker Apprentice to join their friendly and professional team.

We are an edge-of-care provision and our team of specialised Family Support Workers and Registered Social Workers are experienced in working with children of all ages. We help families with complex issues and challenges, such as learning difficulties, mental health problems, drug and alcohol abuse, and violence in the home (the toxic trail) or where a child is at risk of entering the care system.

PKS know that children thrive and are best supported within a home, when families stay together. Our support workers attempt to change the family dynamic so that the wellbeing of a child is primary and Local Authority intervention becomes unnecessary or less intrusive.
