Are you looking to work some additional hours on a casual basis within North Somerset Council’s Children’s Services?  Would you like the flexibility to choose when and where you work?  Then this could be the perfect opportunity for you!


The Family Contact Service are looking for casual workers to join their team as ‘Children’s Family Workers’.  You will supervise contact (also known as Family Time) for Children in Care with their parents/wider family.  This is a varied role, and you will have the opportunity to work with children of all ages and their families, ensuring that the time they spend together is safe, supported and enjoyed.


Most Family Time sessions are 1.5hrs – 2hrs in length and take place across North Somerset.  You’ll be paid time to write up accurate notes from the session which are used by Social Workers in their assessments/part of Court proceedings.


You will be joining a very friendly and supportive team with extensive experience of supervising Family Time at North Somerset Council.  You’ll also have the option to take part in regular Team Meetings, group supervision sessions and one-to-one meetings with the Family Time Supervisors. 


Experience of working with children would be an advantage but full training will be provided.  A full UK driving licence would be desirable. 


This post is exempt under the provisions of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions) Order 1975 and is subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check.
