Show the interview panel that you have done your research - read the job description to make sure that you fill the requirements for the role and that it fits your expectations. Show that you know who and what we are and stand for - there's loads of useful information on our Careers site, so have a read here: https://careers.timeouthomes.co.uk/Finally, we can be a little awkward to find - so perhaps a 'dry run' (if possible) to make sure you know where to find us on the day of your interview, if that's not possible - make sure you allow plenty of time.

Most importantly be yourself. We understand that you will be nervous and that's okay - don't forget we've all been in the same position.

You can’t always control a child’s actions or risk-taking behaviours, which can make things difficult at times and especially (if like me), you like to be the best you can be. A big part of the role involves a lot of paperwork which can be challenging at times and especially when a child also needs your attention. However, by remembering that giving the children all available opportunities to build relationships, bonds and progressing to be the best they can be is after all, why we do this.

Well, I can't think of anything. In my experience of working here, the management are always approachable and open to discussion - they will make time to listen to you if there is something you need to discuss with them - the door is always open. So, when people do leave - they are keen to find out what went wrong and what can be learned.

Rota’s are given to staff 4-6 weeks in advance, this allows you to plan for your shifts and days off in advance. We use an online system that allows you to access your rota with ease as soon as it is published. A permanent contract with ourselves includes 10-11 shifts per month (dependant on how the month’s rota falls). However, if you require more flexibility, we have roles available for Bank Therapeutic Carers. This provides both yourself and the organisation with more flexibility. For more information on the role, please visit out careers site on:- https://careers.timeouthomes.co.uk/

Feedback is delivered through a variety of different measures. Each team has a monthly Team Meeting, this provides an opportunity for employee’s to work together to discuss the child’s progress. In addition, Supervision Meetings are conducted on a monthly basis (during your probation period, these are held twice monthly). We offer a clear Development Plan, this puts you in charge of your own personal development; including Performance Reviews.Our managers and senior managers are approachable and available for meetings outside of the aforementioned systems.Due to current Social Distancing and isolation measures in place, all meetings are being conducted via Microsoft Teams (video conferencing).

I found the advert on the recruitment website and replied to that. Not only did I attach my CV but also attached a covering letter briefly outlining my experience and why I was interested in the role. I always think that attaching a covering letter with an application gives the recruiter a little more of an idea of who you are.
