Are you seeking a rewarding career, supporting a baby with complex health needs in her own home overnight?

If yes, we may have the ideal position for you!

We have a rewarding position for a Waking Night’s Children’s Support Worker to care for a 1-year old baby girl with complex needs in her own home in Cosham, Portsmouth.

The role will also include the use of clinical equipment, but previous experience is not necessary because full training is provided. Our Managers will ensure you feel competent in your role before you are lone working.

The little girl is currently in hospital in Southampton, until we have trained carers to enable her to come home.

Once she is home they will become waking night shifts.
