Are you an effective and enthusiastic individual who is passionate about reducing the number of children being removed into care by supporting women to bring about change in their lives?
Pause is a national independent organisation seeking to prevent the damaging consequences of thousands more children being taken into care each year by working with women who have experienced – or are at risk of – repeated pregnancies that result in children needing to be removed from their care. The programme gives women the chance to pause and take control over their lives, breaking a destructive cycle that causes both them and their children deep trauma, as well as reducing huge costs to society and the taxpayer.
As a Pause Practice Coordinator, you will be responsible for providing comprehensive and confidential assistance and administrative support to Pause Bristol to enable staff to perform their duties effectively and efficiently. You will need to be well organised and enthusiastic, and pay close attention to detail to support the fast paced and busy assertive outreach team.
In addition you will act as a key liaison for partner agencies and Pause Bristol, as well as being a direct point of contact for the women themselves.
You’ll be a big part of a small team, where everyone takes a flexible and collaborative approach to work, and is committed to improving outcomes for vulnerable and marginalised groups.
