One of the roles is to cover a temporary secondment working within the school attendance team.

The other two roles are part of a new project to support vulnerable families, specifically children of refugees, asylum seekers and Gypsy/Roma families, into school places.

The successful candidates will be confident working with families face to face at drop-in sessions and will liaise with schools on parent’s behalf to ensure students are admitted in a timely way. You will be responsible for capturing data which will be used to report on the project so must possess good ICT skills and attention to detail.
