The successful applicant will work in the City of Glasgow Local Authority area in a dual role on behalf of SCMA.

Secondly, to recruit and train new childminders in the Clyde Gateway area of Glasgow. This supports our partnership working with Clyde Gateway, Children in Scotland and Jobs in Business Glasgow to assist in meeting childcare needs in the area and to promote childminding as a potential career option (funded March 2020).

You will have experience of delivering training to adults, an awareness and understanding of families and the support required, working collaboratively with key agencies with Early Years and have an understanding of childminding and the role of childminders.
