The expectation of a collaborative team approach will ensure that the Children’s Centre core offer is supported and driven forward, that relationships with our community partners are strong and that our partnerships with our neighbourhood colleagues ensure that our community’s needs are identified and met. ‘Outreach’ is an essential part of this role, and the candidate should have an understanding and working knowledge of the statutory and voluntary agencies that support our families and how information can be used effectively to shape our service provision.
The successful applicant needs to be flexible, have an enthusiastic approach and be able to work collaboratively and sensitively in a busy environment. They will need to be professional at all times, with a particular awareness of confidentiality. Good communication skills and an interest in working with young children and families are essential.
