We are recruiting a Family Group Decision Making Coordinator to join a new team in South Lanarkshire. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of setting up a new team to develop a rights-based approach to working with families and communities. Children 1st are trauma informed and strengths based in our approach to working with children and families.

Although this is a small service, you will be working alongside wider multiagency partners. You will have the opportunity to shape and develop a new service and a new way of working within South Lanarkshire.

The post holder will engage with children and families to ensure their voices are at the heart of planning and decision making in matters that affect them. We are therefore looking to recruit a dynamic, experienced individual who can drive the successful development and growth of this new and innovative partnership.

Children 1st along with partners share a determination to act upon the recommendations from The Independent Care Review and deliver The Promise to children and young people. We are also determined that the full incorporation of the UNCRC means that children will have their rights respected in all areas of their lives and will have a real say in the way they are supported. If you share this determination, we would love to hear from you.

This is an exciting opportunity for anyone interested in rights-based approaches and has a passion for family empowerment.

This is a fixed term, full time role of 35 hours per week, funded until 01 November 2022.
