Home-Start Cambridgeshire has supported families in Cambridgeshire for nearly 30 years. Our aim is to give every child the best possible start in life. Our trained volunteers make weekly visits to families with young children who are going through difficult times, giving emotional and practical support.
This is an exciting time for our team; we have successfully transitioned from a single source of funding to multiple streams of funding, we have adapted our organisation to better align it to our funding models and in recent months have moved to our new headquarters in Papworth Everard, Cambridgeshire.
We are looking for a Senior Co-ordinator who will work in collaboration with other senior staff in developing existing and new services across the county and supporting future organisational developments.
The Senior Coordinator will be based in Papworth Everard, but will be expected to travel to families and meetings throughout the County.
The role will report to the Chair of Trustees, HSC. Direct reports include co-ordinators and administrative staff.
The successful candidate will take satisfaction in ensuring that the HSC operations are well managed. The majority of their time will be spent on maintaining and continuously improving operations and services, managing family caseloads and a staff team delivering effective family support, on time and to budget. A proportion of their time will be allocated to supporting ongoing delivery, evaluation and research of projects, as well as promoting HSC and supporting business development.
You will be a confident leader working as part of a Cambridgeshire wide team. Your ability to prioritise important and urgent tasks to achieve the team’s objectives is vital. To get the most out of this role you will be an enthusiastic and hardworking hands-on manager. Your desire to learn about our charitable organisation and the families we support is essential.
Experience of working with vulnerable families, parenting experience and knowledge of the voluntary sector would be advantages, as would expertise in specific areas such as mental health and SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities). Use of own car (insured for business use) and clean driving license are required; reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed other than from home to office. The post is subject to an enhanced DBS check.
We want to hear from you if you think you would be suited for this rewarding post. See our website for more information on HSC: www.homestartcambridgeshire.co.uk
