Midlothian Sure Start is a dynamic, award winning third sector organisation. It offers a quality support service to families with children up to age 12 across Midlothian. Midlothian Sure Start has been in existence since 2001 and employs over 70 members of staff providing a service in Family Learning centres and in the community. Our ethos is to provide a holistic, confidential community based service where families are at the heart of what we do.

We are currently recruiting a part-time Development Officer within our Perinatal team, to support the delivery of our Open Kindergarten and HENRY projects and other activities across Midlothian, providing supportive opportunities for both parents/carers and children. This will involve coordinating, reporting on, supporting and assisting in the day-to-day delivery of family learning activities across the centre.

Experience supporting families, working with parents and promoting services within the local community is essential, as is experience of delivering groups e.g. PICL, Peep, AGS or equivalent however full training and induction will be provided.
