Is this you?  

We are looking for an enthusiastic and hardworking candidate to support our Children and Young People’s Service with the coordination of referrals, training and administrative support.

We are looking for an innovative candidate, ideally with experience of working with children and young people.

This is a great opportunity for someone who loves working with children and young people, providing trauma focused, holistic support.

The role:   

You will provide administrative support to our Children and Young People’s Advocates (CYPA) who deliver interventions across the Black Country to children and young people who have witnessed domestic abuse. The Our Future Project, has been funded by Home Office Children Affected by Domestic Abuse Grant, and acknowledges the important role schools can play in offering a safe, stable space in the lives of children and young people living with abuse and violence at home. As part of the project, the SPOC will primarily work with CYPAs in Sandwell, Dudley, Walsall and Wolverhampton who support children and young people affected by domestic violence and abuse (DVA) in the home. There will be a requirement to support the CYPAs in delivering group programmes, workshops and assemblies within various settings. You will also deliver training to professionals within the education setting and via remote platforms, to enable them to deal with disclosures and support children effectively.

If you are self-driven, conscientious and organised with lots of ambition we would love to hear from you.
