This is a full-time position of 37.5 hours per week.

We are looking for a Family Support Worker to work with families who are experiencing abusive behaviour from their children or young people.

The successful candidate will have a background in Social Care or Youth Justice and/or be qualified to Level 4 in Parenting. You will be a confident self-starter, able to work with minimum supervision, and have a passion for working with young people and their families.

The post-holder will be required to travel around Hertfordshire and to the office, which is based in the borough of Broxbourne, therefore the use of your own vehicle and a clean driving license is essential.
