This is an exciting opportunity to work with children, parents and carers supporting them to engage with local services, adult learning, training and employment opportunities.

This post is full time and sits within the Community Family Hub (West) team. You will provide Early Help to families to help improve outcomes for children and their parents / carers. Within this role, early help involves: providing support and information to parents in the antenatal period, working in partnership with parents and local partners; being part of, and in some instances co-ordinating, a multi-agency package of support for families.

You will work within a multi-disciplinary team to support the delivery of our integrated programme of activities and services to meet the needs of local families. You will reach out to all families within our diverse community ensuring that those who find services most difficult to reach can access appropriate support.

We are committed to protecting and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expect all staff to share this commitment. This post is working in regulated activity. If you are successful we will undertake additional recruitment checks which will include a check to see if you have had any criminal convictions, a check of police information and we will check the barred list(s). It is a criminal offence for a barred individual to apply for a job in regulated activity.

As this post involves working with children, vulnerable adults or dealing with sensitive information, written references will be taken up and made available to interviewers before the final selection stage; even if you indicate otherwise.
