Do you want to help Scotland to Keep The Promise?
We’re looking for an experienced professional to continue our work in the care and protection of Scotland’s children.
As a leading improvement and innovation centre in Scotland, CELCIS works to improve the lives of children and young people in need of care and protection, and their families and carers, by supporting people and organisations responsible for their care to make changes in services and in the practices and skills they use.
We’re looking for a new consultant to join our Protecting Children team who’ll bring insight and first-hand practitioner experience of child protection to our work.
Do you have significant experience and knowledge of child protection and children’s services practice and policy? Could you support the improvement of children’s assessment and care planning processes, decision-making, policy and practice in Scotland? And the essential delivery of the national Child Protection Improvement Programme (CPIP) too? If so, this could be the role for you.
Central to the role is the ability to work closely with our partners to support them to implement improvements designed to support families and provide early help, prevent harm and protect our children and young people living in fragile circumstances. Alongside a deep commitment to making lasting, positive change, our new team member will need to have an excellent understanding of the complexity of multi-agency collaborative working.
The role would suit candidates who are strategic thinkers with a range of skills including excellent relationship building, communication and negotiating skills, the ability to work collaboratively with children, families, care experienced people and other groups and partners (including local authorities, third sector partners, Health Boards and Partnerships, Police Scotland, the Care Inspectorate, Child Protection Committees and the Scottish Government).
You will have an appropriate professional qualification / relevant degree, with substantial experience and a track record in collaborative working in services for children and young people.
Does this sound like you? We are working across the country, at local and national level, to help realise The Promise of the Independent Care Review. Change is happening. Be part of it. Together we can make things better for children, young people and their families and carers..
