Children and Families Practitioner
£32,009 fte. Part time 30 hours
Due to the forthcoming retirement of a member of the clinical team we have an exciting opportunity to join a small, committed and experienced team which supports children, young people and families before and after the death of a parent or sibling. SeeSaw is a local well respected registered charity which has been providing a service for Oxfordshire families since 2000.
We are looking for candidates with experience of working with children and young people. You will have a special remit for supporting children and families when a parent or carer or sibling is dying. Our practitioners liaise with professionals from palliative care settings, schools, social care and children and young people’s mental health services. You will work with other members of the team to provide group work and family activity days. You will also have a caseload of individual children and their families to support. You will be able to work collaboratively and on your own initiative, have a qualification in health care, social work, counselling, psychological services or education, knowledge of therapeutic interventions in grief work, and skills in communicating with and training professionals. We are particularly keen to hear from people who have worked in hospices, hospitals or other medical settings; but the most important quality is the ability to communicate effectively and to make and sustain supportive relationships with families.
