What we Look For

Empathy and Understanding.

All of our roles are based in education and care settings. Often you will be working with some of the most vulnerable young people in society.

We have very high expectations of everyone who works with us and we believe passionately that anyone educating or caring for young people should be doing so for the right reasons. At the heart of everything you do should be a willingness, and an ability, to empathise, understand and meaningfully connect with the young person or people you are working with.

Positive Role Models

We believe that people can make huge differences in vulnerable young people’s lives in very simple ways. 

Being punctual, consistent, polite and friendly, having a professional appearance, demonstrating confidence and self-motivation, promoting the value of education and signposting positive pathways – all of these things are small but essential ways in which our team act as positive role models for our service users.

Adaptability and Problem Solving

Working with Shine, no two days will be same.

The nature of our work means that new challenges arise all the time. We are looking for people who can meet problems head on and consistently deliver positive outcomes for the young people they are working with. This will mean demonstrating an ability to adapt to a range of situations as well as effective problem solving skills.
