We are looking for an Education Coordinator to be based mainly in the Aberdeen Office, with some flexibility around home working to be agreed, e.g. recognising COVID related restrictions.

Children 1st are developing a new and exciting way of supporting families in Aberdeen. We have a long history of working with children and families in the city. After a pause in 2018 we reviewed our purpose and role alongside children, families and partners. We have been building a new approach to help children affected by poor mental health and emotional distress. Children 1st along with partners share a determination to act upon the recommendations from The Independent Care Review and deliver The Promise to children and young people. We are also determined that the full incorporation of the UNCRC means that children will have their rights respected in all areas of their lives and will have a real say in the way they are supported. This new Children 1st service will sit at the heart of three local community hubs, providing early support to children and their families at the point when they need this to prevent more intensive supports being necessary.

Are you a client-focused individual with experience of advice work with a specific focus on housing issues, money and debt and welfare benefits? Then join Shelter as a Development Worker and you could soon be playing a key role within an exciting project that’s funded by The Social Innovation Fund and supported by the European Social Fund (ESF) and Scottish Government.
Housing has become a national emergency that affects us all. At Shelter Scotland, we believe a safe home isn’t just a fundamental need - it should be a right. That’s why, more than ever, this year and beyond we are leading the way to a safe home. We’re going to rally the country to join us on our mission to rise up, speak with a united voice, pick up the pieces and fix the underlying problem. Will you join our Time for Change team and help us?
Time for Change focuses on the identification of local issues facing homeless people and, through involvement and wider consultation, co-produces the design and delivery of a local response to tackle those issues. The approach taken by Time for Change recognises that the individuals we seek to engage with face more barriers to accessing our core housing advice offer, so we go to them and whilst seeking to learn from their experiences and involve them in our work, we provide them with access to our core offer at the point of contact. This approach aims to improve individual outcomes whilst learning about the wider societal and systemic changes that are required.
About the role
As a Development Worker you'll be providing advice on all areas of housing, homelessness, money and debt and welfare benefits.

You’ll need experience of housing and/or debt and/or welfare benefit advice and experience of working with people with a variety of issues in an advice and support environment. The ability to work with a wide variety of stakeholders is important too, as is a proactive, client-focused and collaborative approach, great relationship building skills, respect for others' opinions and the ability to deal effectively with change. You’ll need to be able to use MS office applications and experience of using case management systems is desirable.
We offer a wide range of benefits, including 30 days of annual leave, enhanced family friendly policies, pension and interest free travel loans. Our employees also have access to a tenancy deposit loan, cycle to work scheme and an employee assistance programme.
Shelter Scotland helps over half a million people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help.
