LIVE ??? WORK ??? CARE

We currently have the opportunity for both part time and full time Family Key workers to join our Support and Safeguarding teams across Wiltshire.

About the role

As a Family Keyworker, you will establish strong relationships with children, young people, parents and carers to enable a thorough understanding of barriers to them achieving positive outcomes and, using appropriate intervention techniques and direct work, develop their resilience, strengthen family relationships and prevent the need for more intensive or specialist services.

About you

You will be educated to an NVQ Level 4 or equivalent and have a strong understanding of child protection policies and procedures and the importance of safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults.

Proven experience of working with vulnerable children, with thorough knowledge and understanding of child development and a commitment to improving outcomes for children and families is essential.
