If you are looking for a rewarding role that could fit in with childcare and other personal commitments how about joining the friendly team at National Star as a Night Care and Support Worker? We are looking to recruit a part-time Night Care and Support Worker to work in our student residences at Ullenwood, just outside Cheltenham.

You’ll undertake 12 hour shifts typically 8pm – 8am. (Enhanced rates of pay for weekend shifts are £14.69). You’ll get to work with some amazing young people with disabilities who have big personalities and even bigger ambitions to make the most of their lives.
