An exciting opportunity has arisen for someone who is assertive, thinks creatively and is able to engage families.
Based in the Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub, you will work alongside partners from health, education housing, YOT and social care, to gather information and feed into decision making. You will be assertive and confident, encouraging different and creative decision making, to ensure that wherever possible, families are supported at an earlier stage under an early help remit.
