We have a long history of working with children and families in West Lothian and are a busy and developing resource. We offer a range of support including Family Group Decision Making, Support to Kinship families, as well as building a new approach to help children and young people affected by poor mental health and emotional distress. Children 1st along with partners in West Lothian Health and Social Care share a determination to act upon the recommendations from The Independent Care Review and deliver The Promise to children and young people. We are also determined that the full incorporation of the UNCRC means that children will have their rights respected in all areas of their lives and will have a real say in the way they are supported. We have a small and friendly team with a base in Bathgate and are looking for an administrator who will underpin the support and commitment we offer to children, young people and their families.

What kind of person will make a good Administrator for Children 1st?

  • will possess excellent administrative, IT and financial skills to support the work of Children 1st

  • ability to maintain diaries, schedule and coordinate meetings and appointments
  • able to record, process and analyse data
  • a cool head and clear minded at times of pressure
  • thinks it’s a privilege to work for and on behalf of children and families and
  • is kind and compassionate and places people at the heart of their work

Above all else, the most important thing to us is that you are someone that will support the team who are doing the right thing for children and their families at every turn.
