In partnership with Fife Council Social Work’s leaving care team, we are delivering services designed to support young people who are in transition from leaving the looked-after system and moving to independent living. Our role within the partnership is to provide advice and guidance to clients on employment, training or further education opportunities and the wider employability agenda.
If you would like to play a part in this exciting initiative, we now require a Personal Development Mentor to join our team based in Fife.
This post is based within the social work offices in Glenrothes and works in close partnership with social work staff and other agencies. Experience of working with young people and an understanding of issues affecting young people are essential, caseload responsibilities and a commitment to providing a professional service are also essential. A driving licence or access to a means of transport would be an advantage due to the area covered. Knowledge of the Scottish criminal justice system and of working with care leavers is desirable. At the moment this service is funded until 31 March 2018. We are hopeful of extension, however cannot guarantee this at the moment. Job share applications will be considered.
If you have recently submitted a completed application for our Steps service vacancies and would also like to be considered for this opportunity. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org giving your full name and details, and we will be happy to consider the application form already submitted.
In view of the nature of these posts, the successful candidates will be required to become a member of the PVG scheme.
