Salary £25,290 – £28,464 depending on skills and experience
We are looking for an experienced family support practitioner to join our team.
Location: Lanarkshire/Ayrshire/South West Scotland (hybrid working from home and occasional travel to Edinburgh head office)
Every year, our highly skilled advice and outreach team support hundreds of families across Scotland, and numbers are increasing annually. Our Direct Help and Support services are available five days a week, with Family Outreach Specialists on hand to help those whose lives have been impacted by the support needs of children and young people who are neurodivergent, and who may have learning difficulties. We provide practical and emotional support, advocacy, and information to empower families to make decisions and reach positive outcomes.
Our highly experienced outreach team works throughout Scotland, engaging with both families and the professionals in schools, social work, justice, and health to ensure that we really are getting it right for every child and young person. Due to growing demand for our services in West/South West Scotland, we wish to appoint a team member who can easily manage travel within, broadly, North and South Lanarkshire, North and South Ayrshire and potentially Dumfries & Galloway. The ability to demonstrate local knowledge of services in one or more of these areas would be an advantage.
This post may occasionally require weekend and/or evening work and very occasionally working elsewhere.
Closing Date for Applications: 9am on Monday 18th July 2022
Interviews will be held on: Thursday 28th July 2022
