Role

Partners in Advocacy is a charity providing independent advocacy, which means that we help children and young people exercise their rights and share their views with the people around them.

We have an exciting new opportunity for an enthusiastic individual who has a passion for working with children and young people – to join our dynamic and friendly team within our Children’s Hearings Service.

Experience of providing independent advocacy and/or working with vulnerable children and young people is desirable, but not essential. Full training and support will be provided for the duration of the post.

You will need a clean driving licence and access to a roadworthy vehicle. We are currently working from home, but there will be a requirement to travel when restrictions are eased. PVG Scheme membership will be a requirement of the post – this will be arranged by us on appointment.
