Children and Families Practitioner (Maternity Cover)
About the role
Children and Families Practitioner maternity cover
£34,977 fte. Full or Part time considered. This is a 12-month contract, starting in May 2024, but it may lead to a permanent role.
We have an exciting opportunity for someone to join a small, committed and experienced team supporting children, young people and families before and after the death of a parent or sibling. SeeSaw is a local award-winning charity, providing grief support for Oxfordshire families since 2000.
We are looking for candidates to cover a maternity leave, who have experience of working with children and young people, and their families. You may have gained experience in a range of settings, but the most important quality is the ability to communicate effectively and to make and sustain supportive relationships with families.
Our practitioners have a caseload of individual children and their families, and liaise with professionals from schools, health, social care and children and young people’s mental health services. You will be able to work collaboratively and on your own initiative, ideally have a qualification in health care, social work, counselling, psychological services or education; knowledge of therapeutic interventions in grief work would be helpful but not essential as training will be given.
Closing date: 12pm Monday 4th March 2024
