The Family Support and Early Intervention Division (the early intervention arm of Barnet Children’s Service) is recruiting a part-time Multi-Agency Coordinator (MAC) to join our Multi-Agency Support Team.
The role of the MAC is to provide advice and assistance to practitioners across the local children’s workforce regarding multi-agency working and the use of the Common Assessment Framework (CAF) process.
The post will support Schools, Children Centres and other settings to early identify children with additional needs and to develop a ‘team around the setting’ approach, to coordinate appropriate support.
The post also has a crucial role in supporting the operation of the Multi-Agency Groups (MAGs), acting as the conduit between CAF practitioners/Lead
Professionals and the MAGs (A group of senior managers from key partner agencies and Children’s Service set up to ensure the effective use of the CAF and to trouble-shoot CAFs which have become stuck).
You will be based in a busy but supportive team, made up of other Multi-Agency Coordinators, CAF Social Workers and Early Intervention Domestic Violence Workers.
The successful applicant needs to be qualified to degree level or level 4 in a relevant field such as social work, early years, education or health.
You will need experience in working with children and families, especially those with additional needs. The post's aim is to support good multi-agency working across the local children's workforce, especially around use of the Common Assessment Framework (The CAF).
This post is a job share for 18 hours per week (Mon-Wed).
12 months fixed term contract with possibility to renew subject to funding.
If shortlisted you will be required to bring photographic ID to your interview to prove your identity.
