Job reference: L73-A-20-0414

Interview date: 22/10/2020

Due to expansion of our service, we are looking for new Early Year’s Family Practitioners to join our team and share our vision of ‘‘One Children’s Service - Consistently Good Everyday’.

Early Year’s Family Practitioners are valued members of the health visiting team. They work with families to provide early intervention and health promotion advice and often provide reassurance and encouragement to parents as part of the service offer. They are the experts in child development and work with families to ensure milestones are being met, giving advice when delays are identified.

We are looking for dynamic, energetic and innovative individuals to join us. The ideal candidates should have demonstrated experience working with children aged 0-5 in either a health or education setting. They should be emotionally intelligent with good communication skills and knowledge of the Healthy Child Programme. A clear understanding of the development of parent-child attachment is advantageous and a passion for child development and health promotion is key for this role. The ability to travel throughout the Borough is essential and therefore a car driver would be preferable.

For the right candidates, we can offer an exciting and rewarding role. A full training package is available which is supported by both senior Early Years Family Practitioners and team leads. They will also receive:

A wide range of training and career development opportunities

25 days holiday

A career average revalued earnings (CARE) pension scheme

Leisure and Legal Services discounts

Eating Out, Shopping and Entertainment discounts

Candidates must be fluent in the English language (as a requirement of Part 7 of the Immigration Act – for the effective performance of a customer-facing role).
