This is an exciting opportunity for an Advice Worker to join our new Maximise Early Years project as part of the award winning Maximise! partnership between CHAI and Children 1st.

The project takes a whole family, early intervention and trauma-informed approach to helping families who require some additional support and who may face multiple barriers to moving out of poverty. The Advice Worker will support families across 5 Early Years Centres in Edinburgh; Stenhouse, Sighthill, Calderglen, Hailesland and Gilmerton.

Using the holistic Maximise! model of Family Wellbeing assistance, Income Maximisation and Employability Support, the project aims to support families towards increased stability within family relationships, improved living conditions, barrier removal, increased financial and social inclusion and skills development leading to progression along the employability pipeline.

The Advice worker will be expected to contribute to the further development of the Maximise Early Years model which also incorporates the ethos of close partnership working with families, the Early Years Centres and all relevant stakeholders.
