Lleoliad: Penarth

Oriau: Llawn amser (43 awr yr wythnos)

Cyflog: Tua £23,331

Sut mae Gweithredu dros Blant yn gweithio

Mae Gweithredu dros Blant yn gwneud yr hyn sy’n iawn, yr hyn sydd ei angen, a’r hyn sy’n effeithiol i blant ar draws y Deyrnas Unedig. Bob blwyddyn, mae’r tîm yn newid bywydau 301,000 o blant, pobl ifanc a’u teuluoedd – ond er mwyn i bob plentyn y mae angen cymorth arno gael y cymorth hwnnw, mae llawer mwy i’w wneud. Dyna’ch rôl chi.

Sut rydym yn gweithio:

Mae Ysgol Headlands ym Mhenarth, De Cymru. Mae’n Ysgol Arbennig Breswyl sy’n gwasanaethu plant a phobl ifanc rhwng 7 a 19 oed gydag ymddygiad heriol, gan gynnwys Anawsterau Emosiynol, Cymdeithasol ac Ymddygiadol, Problemau Ymlyniad, Anhwylderau’r Sbectrwm Awtistiaeth, ac anghenion cymhleth. Ar hyn o bryd, rydym yn dilyn proses i fod yr ysgol gyntaf yng Nghymru i gael ei hachredu’n Ysgol ag Ymwybyddiaeth o Ymlyniad.

Rydym yn chwilio am bobl sy’n rhannu ein gwerthoedd ac sydd ag ymrwymiad i’r bobl ifanc yr ydym yn gofalu amdanynt.

Mae’r Ysgol ar agor 24 awr y diwrnod, 52 wythnos y flwyddyn, ac fel Gweithiwr Gwasanaethau Plant byddwch yn gweithio mewn un o’r 4 tŷ preswyl ar sail rota 4 wythnos fydd yn cynnwys 8 diwrnod i ffwrdd (sy’n cyfateb i 2 yr wythnos). Byddwch yn gweithio o leiaf 2 benwythnos o bob 4. Mae’r rota’n cynnwys patrwm sifft: 7:30am tan 4:00pm, a 2:30pm tan 11:00pm. Dyma enghraifft o’r sifftiau: 2:30pm tan 11:00pm, wedyn cysgu yn yr ysgol (mewn un o’n tai preswyl; cewch daliad am hyn) ac wedyn 7:30am tan 4:00pm y diwrnod canlynol.

Sut byddwch yn gwneud gwahaniaeth:

  • Trwy fod yn Ddelfryd Ymddwyn cadarnhaol i’n pobl ifanc.
  • Trwy helpu’r bobl ifanc i gyrraedd eu potensial.
  • Trwy helpu i ddatblygu sgiliau cymdeithasol ac emosiynol, ac annibyniaeth, y bobl ifanc.
  • Trwy gynorthwyo’r bobl ifanc yn eu bywyd bob dydd, megis codi, paratoi am yr ysgol a pharatoi i fynd i’r gwely.
  • Trwy drefnu ac arwain gweithgareddau ar y penwythnos ac yn ystod gwyliau’r ysgol.
  • Trwy helpu i ddiwallu anghenion gofal y bobl ifanc gyda phethau megis mynd i’r meddyg, y deintydd, yr optegydd ac yn y blaen.
  • Trwy ddarparu prydau ysgafn, gwneud y golch, a rhywfaint o lanhau ysgafn.
  • Trwy gynnig amgylchedd diogel mewn lleoliad teuluol.

Bydd angen:

Nid yw’n angenrheidiol i chi fod â’r profiad cywir, dim ond rhaid i chi fod y person iawn. Rydym yn darparu pecyn llawn o hyfforddiant proffesiynol, ac os ydych chi’n llwyddiannus, byddwch yn ymuno â thîm preswyl sy’n perfformio i lefel uchel, sydd wedi’i hen sefydlu, ac sy’n gwneud gwir wahaniaeth.

Y buddion

  • Lleiafswm o 29 diwrnod o wyliau (pro rata)
  • Gweithio hyblyg, gan gynnwys pecyn mamolaeth, tadolaeth a mabwysiadu
  • Benthyciad ar gyfer tocyn tymor
  • Cynllun pensiwn y cwmni
  • Gostyngiadau mewn manwerthwyr y stryd fawr.

Ac mae llawer mwy hefyd.

Mae hyn yn gyfle gwych i wneud gwahaniaeth mawr i fywydau plant agored i niwed ac i adeiladu gyrfa foddhaus ac ystyrlon gydag elusen plant blaenllaw yn y Deyrnas Unedig.

Mae Gweithredu dros Blant wedi ymrwymo i arfer recriwtio diogelach a ddyluniwyd i ddiogelu lles y plant a phobl ifanc sy’n defnyddio ein gwasanaethau.
