We have an opportunity for 1 part time post


The post holders will work primarily within a designated area of Somerset to support early years, schools, social services providers and families who wish to access their services. The post is part time, with minimum guaranteed hours of 24 each week (9am – 3:30pm).

It is essential that you are able to be flexible, organised and self-motivated as although support is available from our Bridgwater office, the work will be mainly out in the field. Applicants will use their own transport, for which a mileage allowance is paid. Qualifications in childcare or education would be helpful, as would an understanding of the UK education system or early years regulations. Some relevant work experience is essential, although we are open minded about the exact nature of this. We are seeking applicants (of any nationality) who are confident in both English and Polish, additional languages would be helpful.

To apply, please contact us by email to request an application pack which has additional information and an application form. Please do not send your cv. The closing date is Tuesday 15th August 2017 at 4pm. Interviews will take place during the week commencing August 28th.
