Further Information

In November 2017 Stockton-On-Tees Children's Services launched a new Family Group Conference (FGC) Service to continue improving outcomes for children, young people and families.

We would like to appoint an FGC Practitioner to join our busy FGC Service. Applicants must have experience of working with complex children, young people and families. The role will require Practitioners to contact family members, arrange meetings, undertake preparatory work and facilitate and chair FGC meetings. You must hold a full driving licence and have access to a vehicle. The role can necessitate frequent working within the homes of families. Evening and weekend work will be required according to service/customer needs.

In addition, the ability to establish and maintain effective and professional relationships with practitioners from a range of services will be essential. Applicants must also be able to demonstrate strong skills in working autonomously and organising their workloads successfully.

If you are a person who is motivated by challenge, has an understanding of FGC's, is experienced in chairing meetings, is an excellent communicator and is motivated by solution focused approaches we would welcome your application.

We would particularly welcome applications from people who have in-depth experience of working with perpetrators and victims of domestic abuse.
