Can you help us to make a difference for the children, families and community of Oldbury? SinglePoint Family Hub is an established and successful BIG LOTTERY and school funded family focused project based on the site of Christ Church CE Primary, in the heart of Oldbury. We are partnered with St Francis Xavier, Langley, Rood End and Christ Church CE Primary Schools. 

We are looking for an enthusiastic, committed and flexible individual with a high level of interpersonal skills to work as part of our established team to make a difference for local families.   We have secured a further 12 months of BIG Lottery Funding for our Family Hub to support families and staff from our partner schools, agencies and the wider community. You will be responsible for helping the project achieve the following outcomes: 

  • Families with specific, multiple & complex needs receive holistic support enabling positive change to minimise social isolation and hardship.

 

 

  • Family relationships are enriched and strengthened by the provision of fun, meaningful, accessible and subsidised quality time opportunities.

 

 

  • Working parents and families experiencing challenges have better access to affordable childcare and holiday provision to improve life chances.

 

You will work with parents and families in a non-judgemental way to support them to raise achievement and enable children, particularly the most disadvantaged to have full access to educational opportunities, support services and overcome barriers to learning and participation. You will be responsible for the delivery of family support packages including building professional relationships, action planning, signposting, giving advice and guidance, home visits and facilitating/delivering parenting programmes.

The successful applicant will have a basic knowledge of the locality and of the services available to children and families from both voluntary and statutory sectors, along with an awareness of the needs of families and children. 

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and safety of children and young people and expect all staff to share this commitment. The successful candidate will need to undertake an Enhanced DBS check. 

SinglePoint welcomes applications from all community members regardless of their ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, gender, etc.

 

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff to share this commitment. We also follow safer recruitment practices and therefore ask all applicants to complete our application form which can be found on the school website and return by 7th January 2019. If you require further information, please speak to Eve Loveridge at SinglePoint.

 

Visits to the school are welcome and encouraged. For an application form please download from the school website - www.christchurch.sandwell.co.uk in the ‘our school’ section.
