This is an exciting opportunity of progression for a dynamic and experienced ‘family-centred’ practitioner who holds a relevant academic or professional qualification at level 3 or higher to play a significant role within the delivery of our Family Early Help Service.

Our transformed Family Early Help Service provides early help through a whole family approach based on collaboration with families and with partners from schools, health, children’s services and the community.

We have vacancy available within our workforce to further enhance our sense of purpose and our growing expertise.  We are looking for an enthusiastic candidate who has significant experience and working knowledge of an early intervention setting and statutory work with children and families.

A reflective practitioner who will have a track record of working holistically with children, young people and families within a whole family model.

You will be a highly skilled practitioner who will demonstrate your extensive capability in engagement, undertaking comprehensive whole family assessments which create clear goals, and your use of evidenced informed practice.

You will be required to demonstrate your skillset to act as a ‘lead professional’ and the importance of working purposefully and collaboratively with all family members and other agencies to achieve best outcomes for children.

You will have an awareness of education issues and understanding of how to work with schools and families to drive engagement of children and families in educational attendance and ambition.

Walsall Council takes seriously the responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all the children, young people and vulnerable adults entrusted to our care and it is our expectation that all staff will share this commitment. We will ensure continuous development and improvement of robust recruitment processes and procedures that promote a culture of safeguarding amongst our workforce. Completion of an enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check is a requirement for working with children and young people.  

Note: Applicants appointed to posts that require an enhanced DBS clearance must declare any periods of time that they have lived, studied or worked abroad and be prepared to provide an Overseas Criminal Records Certificate (OCRC) or a Statement of Good Conduct (SOGC) relating to anytime they were overseas.
