East Suffolk Council is an exciting place to work and a great place to make a real difference to people’s lives, delivering vital services to a quarter of a million people across East Suffolk.

All families can face challenges in day-to-day life - from relationship breakdowns to issues such as ill health or unemployment, there are times when it isn’t always clear where to go for help. In this role you will provide and coordinate support to families with chaotic and complex lives to assist them to make positive and sustainable changes.

Working in partnership with Suffolk County Council, NHS, the police, voluntary sector, Job Centre Plus and others, you will help families in need by supporting a clear, joined up whole family approach and co-producing one plan with the families that sets out what support they will receive from a range of organisations, based on their collective needs.

You will act as a single point of contact for individuals and families to co-ordinate and lead a multi-agency package of support with the aim of overcoming negative behaviours and tackling complex and challenging issues, such as anti-social behaviour, absenteeism from school, domestic abuse, substance misuse, financial exclusion and worklessness.

You will have relevant experience of working in partnership with multiple agencies, experience of working with individuals with  complex  needs, and a working knowledge of relevant key legislation and practice frameworks.

In return, we can offer great opportunities for training and development and give you all the support we can to build a great career with our organisation. There’s also a superb benefits package including flexible working options and purpose-built, brand new office accommodation, as well as a generous leave entitlement, discount scheme, pension scheme and free car parking.

Due to the current situation with Covid-19, the majority of our teams are working from home and there is strict social distancing measures in place for the limited number of staff working from our offices. If you wish to discuss how that might impact your working arrangements if you were the successful candidate, please contact the recruiting manager listed at the bottom of this advert.

Please read the job description and person specification before applying for this job.
