Primary School Age - Team Manager

PRIMARY SCHOOL AGE TEAM MANAGER

Location: Dolphin Centre, Poole

Salary: £41,025 - £43,821

Hours: Full time

Contract: Permanent

Ref No: DP6475

We are making some fundamental changes to the way in which Early Help Services for children, young people and families are delivered. Central to these changes are the formation of a number of new teams to enable us to work even more effectively.

We have a Team Manager level vacancy in our Primary Age Team delivering services through schools and are seeking an experienced and highly motivated individual to join our existing skilled and experienced management team to undertake this new role.

The Team Manager is responsible for a team of skilled practitioners deployed through Primary Schools and providing group work and one to one support to families. The team consists of Family Outreach Workers, School Attendance Workers and Adolescent Support Workers.

In addition to supporting the staff team to help families build their resilience and overcome challenges, you will be working closely with schools themselves to enable them to deliver their part of the Early Help jigsaw. You will need to have sound understanding of the universal aspect of Early Help; if we get this right, more children will be in school, engaging well in learning and achieving their full potential and the right families will be receiving the right help at the right time.

Previous applicants for this post are welcome to re-apply as we have secured additional support for this team from a Primary School Senior Leadership Team which will provide additional support via coaching and mentoring.

For an informal discussion about this role please contact Simon Thomas, Senior Manager 5-19 Services, on 01202 633556.
