The Leaving Care service is expanding as our aspiration is to work with care leavers from the age of 16 and we are looking to recruit 6 Personal Advisors.

Applicants will need to have excellent communication skills and the ability to form positive sustainable relationships with a diverse group of young people. You will have your own caseload of young people aged 16 to 21 and will be expected to support care leavers into adulthood providing a range of practical and financial support. This will involve advocacy, negotiation and working with other agencies and colleagues to ensure young people’s needs are met.

You will be committed to supporting young people to reach their full potential, and to develop an effective working relationship in order to motivate and support care leavers to engage in education, training and employment, and have the necessary emotional resilience and skills for independence. You need to be able to work independently (with ongoing support and supervision being provided); and be part of a very supportive team.

This is a countywide team with the potential to be based at Sherwood Energy Village, Ollerton, Sir John Robinson Way, Arnold or Meadow House, Mansfield.

Appointment to this post is subject to an enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service check.

Disabled applicants who meet the essential shortlisting requirements will be guaranteed an interview. A job share scheme is available for all full time posts: both permanent and temporary, unless otherwise stated. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and we expect all staff to share this commitment and undergo appropriate checks.

The County Council welcomes applications from all, irrespective of gender, marital status, disability, race, age or sexual orientation.
