SEND Local Offer Engagement Coordinator

We have an exciting opportunity for you to join our team where you will play a key role in engaging with the local community about North East Lincolnshire Council’s Local Offer.

What do we do?

Our aim is to remove barriers to learning and put effective special educational provision in place. We are committed to achieving the best outcomes for children and young people with SEND and their families in North East Lincolnshire, by listening to their views and experiences to ensure they are fully involved in co-producing the education, health and care services that they need and deserve.

What will you do?

This is a new role which will focus on developing and maintaining the Local Offer, providing clear and accessible information for children and young people with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities age 0-25 and their families about the services available to them. As part of the role, you will be engaging with families and actively encouraging their involvement, as well as creating and maintaining content for our website and promoting the Local Offer through social media campaigns and other marketing activities. 

What are we looking for?

We are looking for an individual with exceptional written and verbal communication skills, able to work in partnership with local providers and stakeholders to ensure the information about the Local Offer is comprehensive, well maintained, and serves the needs of families in our local area. Creativity and communication are the key skills you will need to succeed in this role, and you will need to be confident in the use of a wide range of digital media.

You don’t need to have worked in this area before, but you should have an interest in Special Educational Needs and Disabilities and be willing to develop your knowledge and complete any relevant training.
