EPs are actively encouraged to contribute strategically to policy development, city wide initiatives and corporate aims. This is an opportunity to make a real difference in a city that is committed to improving the outcomes for children, young people and families.

We offer a supportive peer and senior supervision process and encourage continued professional development, peer mentoring and autonomy in the development of innovative initiatives. In addition to supporting schools and settings, there are opportunities to work in specific areas, including social inclusion, early years, the virtual school, electively home educated, C.M.E., parent forums and underrepresented groups.

This is an opportunity to work in a vibrant, diverse city with colleagues who are committed to facilitating positive change and making a difference!

Our team is seeking individuals who:

  • Are flexible and creative
  • Have excellent communication skills
  • Can work as a team but also autonomously
  • Are efficient with good time management skills
  • Have an extensive knowledge of psychology and be motivated to make a difference to local communities!
