Where just a few hours’ work can make a real difference.
In Kensington and Chelsea, we put local people and local businesses at the heart of decision-making, working in partnership with them to provide quality services that are responsive, effective and efficient. By sharing facilities and expertise with Westminster City Council, we’re able to offer joined-up services for children and their families that are constantly evolving. In our most recent Ofsted inspection, we were judged as outstanding in all areas.
The Role: Joining a highly responsive and well-supported team, you’ll work flexibly to suit the needs of families. You’ll provide child-focused supervision of contact between children and birth parents, both in our Contact Centre and out in the community. This includes escorting children to and from contact sessions and ensuring the contact rooms and play equipment are kept safe and clean. You’ll have the backing of a senior contact worker and access to a wide range of training and development.
Please refer to the Job Description for more information. About You:
