This is an exciting and innovative new service which has been commissioned by Glasgow Health and Social Care Partnership across the localities of North East, North West and South. Children 1st will be working within the South of the city and working closely with our partners, Quarriers in the North East and North West of Glasgow.
We are looking to recruit a Project Worker who has experience of supporting children, young people and/or families and will be able to provide a case management role on behalf of Social Work services. We aim to work therapeutically with children, young people and families, incorporating life story work, shaping the service to suit the needs of kinship families.
The pace of work will be busy and challenging, with a real opportunity to make a difference and develop your skills. You will engage with families to provide required support as well as liaising directly with social work partnerships and other relevant networks.
If you have experience of working with young people and their families and have a professional qualification in a relevant area such as Social Work, Teaching or equivalent in Child Care/Social Care or related area, accredited counselling qualification, or other relevant qualification at SCQF level 9 or higher then… we want to hear from you.
This is a fixed term, full time role of 35 hours per week until September 2021. As much of the work with children, young people and kinship carers will occur after school, there will be a requirement to be able to work in the evenings and some weekends.
Closing date: Thursday 22 November at noon. It is anticipated that interviews will be held on Monday 03 December 2018.
