An exciting opportunity has arisen in Social Work Children and Families to develop a Local House Project.
The Team Leader will lead two House Project Facilitators and implement the development of a Local House Project. The project will work intensively with approximately 10 children in care and care leavers at any one time, to enable them to develop their own House Project, prepare them for independence and support them to secure their own long-term tenancy and maintain an EET pathway. Ongoing support will also be provided to young people who graduate from the House Project.
The successful candidate requires a sound knowledge of policy and legislation and understanding of assessing needs and effective interventions. The Team Leader will work in partnership with other agencies and stakeholders to meet the needs of the young people and to support their development and knowledge to enable them to safely move on.
The post is open to internal applicants and is for three years. If you require more information about the post please contact Raymond Walsh (Resources Service Manager) on 0141 777 3000.
The interviews will be held on the 16th September 2020.
