Role

Circle is a children and families charity working at the heart of communities across central Scotland. Our purpose is to improve the lives of children by strengthening families.

Circle’s approach builds on strengths, is solution focussed and uses a whole family approach to create a family environment that promotes healthy development in children.

Offering individual support across Edinburgh to birth parents who have a child who is permanently fostered, adopted or in kinship care.

We have an exciting opportunity for a committed and skilled practitioner to join our Harbour Team and be part of our Sparrow Service, a city-wide partnership with Stepping Stones North Edinburgh and the City of Edinburgh Council.

Funded by Scottish Government, and administered by Corra Foundation, Sparrow aims to improve support for birth parents, reduce the likelihood of repeat care proceedings and improve professional knowledge and understanding of the needs of birth parents.

The post holder will work alongside a worker from Stepping Stones North Edinburgh and provide one to one holistic support to birth parents in Edinburgh.

A qualification in social work, social care, health or education is required.

We offer excellent staff benefits including a competitive salary, generous pension contribution, flexible working, an employee assistance programme and generous annual leave.

We are committed to finding the right people for the jobs that we advertise.
