Current vacancies

Project worker 1 (18541)

  • Full time
  • £23,868 – £29,172
  • On site: Kilwinning
  • Closing 28th June 2024

Barnardo's is working in partnership with North Ayrshire Alcohol and Drug Partnership (ADP) and North Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership to deliver a service to children and families affected by alcohol and/or drugs. We aim to deliver a service that is rooted in the Whole Family approach and underpinned by Rights Respect and Recovery, Getting Our Priorities Right and Getting it Right for Every child (GIRFEC).

The project is an early intervention approach designed to work collaboratively with families, as most families already have the resilience strength and capabilities they need to recover. The Project Worker will support and nurture these to ensure both children and adults can overcome any difficulties that get in the way.

The successful candidate will be part of the innovative development and delivery of this exciting initiative and therefore is required to demonstrate a level of experience, skills, and knowledge as highlighted below to carry out key aspects of the role. We particularly welcome applications from candidates with lived experience.

The post holder will work in partnership with the North Ayrshire Service Access Team and North Ayrshire Drug & Alcohol Recovery Service (NADARS).

We are particularly interested in hearing from people with personal lived experience of drugs and or alcohol, either their own or a family members.
