Description

The job itself

This role is situated in the Pathway Team. The Pathway Team is a service that supports Children Looked After from age 16 and Care Leavers up until the age of 25. The team works to support and develop young people’s progression to independence, covering all aspects of their lives and needs. This includes education, training and employment, health, accommodation, finances, family and friend relationships, independent living skills and identity. We run our own Supported Lodgings accommodation scheme, panels and activities with young people.

The Right Candidate

An opportunity has arisen for a self-motivated individual to join a busy team providing a wide range of administrative support including minute taking to the Pathway Team within Children’s Services, based at Manor Road, Beverley.

The successful candidate will be enthusiastic and committed to providing a quality service, have a flexible approach and the ability to adapt to a changing environment. To undertake this role successfully you need to be customer focused, able to work easily within a challenging environment, have excellent administrative and organisational skills and have the motivation and desire to achieve a high quality service. You should be able to demonstrate effective use of a range of ICT systems/software packages.

A high level of customer service is required, as is the ability to maintain confidentiality and deal with sensitive material. Teamwork plays a vital role, as does the ability to meet deadlines and work on your own initiative.

This is an opportunity to gain an insight into CYPSSS and the invaluable support we provide for families within the East Riding. This is for maternity cover, but is a fantastic opportunity to develop your CV. For more information, please email tracey.marritt@eastriding.gov.uk
