Role

Would you like to join a vibrant, exciting, team working alongside families and volunteers in North Glasgow and North Lanarkshire?

Home-Start Glasgow North and North Lanarkshire is a charity making a big impact on families with young children (under 5) in the local area. We are now excited to welcome a new, confident, passionate, and enthusiastic Group Co-ordinator to our team who will support the expansion, delivery, and management of groups in North Lanarkshire and North Glasgow.

Home-Starts across the UK work alongside families, in their own homes and in communities to help them through challenging times. We support parents through 1:1 volunteer support and groups helping them to cope with the stresses and strains of life and make sure they have the skills, confidence, and strength they need to nurture their young children. We provide a listening ear, and our non-judgemental, compassionate, confidential support offers a vital lifeline to parents and helps ensure children have the best possible start in life.

The role is initially funded for one year with the possibility of extended funding.

  • An understanding of the needs of babies, children and families
  • Extensive experience of working alongside families in a group setting
  • Experience of consulting with families
  • Good working knowledge of child protection and child development
  • Experience of developing, managing and supporting groups
  • Experience of managing staff and/or volunteers
  • Good IT skills (Microsoft)
  • Vision to develop groups in local communities (North Glasgow and North Lanarkshire)
