About Us: Locating the right parenting solutions, one family at a time

In Kensington and Chelsea, we put local people at the heart of decision-making, working in partnership with them to provide quality services that are responsive, effective and efficient. 

This is a diverse area and we have high aspirations for all our children, starting with early years. In our community-based family hubs, we are aware of the importance of the first 1001 days of each child’s life, supporting milestones that will make a real difference, and providing their families with vital access to local services. 

The Role:

We make extensive use of the principles of systemic practice to consider the dynamics of the whole family and the community in which they live. Using your expertise in childcare or education, you will advise on different aspects of early years development including parenting skills, child behaviour, nutrition and play. You can also expect to support parents in accessing employment and education, and to come up with creative approaches to engaging vulnerable or isolated groups. Working as a part of a skilled, multidisciplinary team that works closely with health visitors and midwives, you’ll have opportunities to learn and develop at every step, all with the close support of your team manager. 

Please refer to the Job Description for more information.

About You:

Passionate about working with families and carers, you’ll hold a Level 3 Early Education or Childcare qualification and will have experience of empowering parents to develop their own solutions. Able to build rapport with a wide variety of individuals, you’ll be enthusiastic, creative and resourceful in addressing issues.  Good organisational skills are essential, and you’ll also be meticulous about record-keeping and evaluating information.  A willingness to network and collaborate with other services and professionals will be at the heart of your success.

In return, you can look forward to a package that includes a competitive salary, a high-quality pension scheme and generous annual leave plus bank holidays.

Please apply online explaining how you meet the requirements set out in the person specification and job description. CV’s will not be considered for this role.

We reserve the right to close this vacancy early if we receive a high volume of suitable applicants.
