Role

Kidzeco is a successful and well-established social enterprise based in West Lothian with stores in Bathgate and Livingston providing affordable, high quality pre-loved children’s goods to families in our communities.

Our new community space ‘Kidz ‘n Kin’ opened in May and offers a plethora of play, learning and health educational activities for families.

We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic and inspiring individual with a background in health, early education or community work to take lead responsibility for our new ‘Kidz Knashers’ project to educate and promote positive oral health practices to expectant mothers and families within targeted communities.

The post holder will be responsible for liaising with dentists, Childsmile, health professionals and other third sector organisations providing and delivering oral health related activities and will be expected to work collaboratively as part of their day to day work. As much of this role will be working with members of the public it is essential that the successful candidate can communicate at all levels.

Although the position will be primarily based in Livingston we require the post holder to have their own transport as there will be a requirement to work throughout West Lothian. The appointed applicant will also be required to become a member of the PVG scheme.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a motivated and ambitious organisation so if you have the sunshine personality, relevant skills and are willing to learn then please apply.
