Due to retirement of our current Groups Co-ordinator, we are looking to recruit an experienced practitioner to join our team based here in Alloa. This post involves overseeing our group work provision (mainly within the early-years framework) in areas across Clackmannanshire. The Groups Co-ordinator role is a hands-on role and is well supported by 2 Family Support Group Workers and a cluster of Group Volunteers.

The parents we support are struggling with daily challenges such as mental health illness, disability, poverty, domestic abuse, relationship difficulties, trauma, isolation and loneliness. In addition to our weekly Family Support Groups, we provide one to one support to families in their own homes and out and about in the community.

Key responsibilities:

  • An understanding of the needs of children and families
  • Experience of supporting babies and children (and parents) within an early years group setting.
  • Relevant experience of working alongside families with young children and babies experiencing challenges/trauma
  • Experience of working in partnership with both statutory services and third sector partners
  • Good working knowledge of child protection and child development
  • Good IT and Database skills
  • A full driving licence and use of a car is essential.

Ideally, the successful candidate will hold a minimum level of SCQF Level 7 (SVQ Level 3) in a relevant field and show a commitment to ongoing personal and professional development. As is usual, this post is subject to membership of the PVG Scheme and suitable references.
