Be a part of something amazing. Join the Break team.
We currently have an exciting job opportunity open for a Transition Worker working across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough working with young people transitioning from care into independence in their local community.
Break provides caring support for vulnerable children for as long as they need it. Whatever a child’s start in life, Break believes that with the right care there is no limit to what they can achieve. They provide homes and support where young people can belong, begin to flourish, and embrace their future with confidence and hope.
Being a Transition Worker means you will support our young people leaving care and embarking on their journey of independence. You will work with them on an individualised plan, provide emotional and practical support, and remain a steady figure in their lives as they find their feet in the adult world.
You will need to be someone who is enthusiastic and creative, with a professional, caring, and calm approach. You will need to be committed and flexible, motivated and motivational, and be imaginative in your problem-solving. The role will require you to work both independently and as part of a team, so it is essential you can work well in both situations.
This is an extremely exciting role that offers you the incredible opportunity of being a significant and positive figure within multiple young people’s lives – you will be incredibly important in helping them feel settled and confident throughout the innately tricky shift to independence, and you will be instrumental in helping us to change young lives.
