We are hiring

Early Years Provision and Childcare Development Officer (fixed post for 12 months)

The post is funded by the Aspiring Communities Fund. Supported by the Scottish Government and European Social Fund (ESF) the fund supports those in our most deprived and fragile communities in the Highlands and Islands areas to develop and deliver long-term local solutions that address local priorities and needs, increase active inclusion and build on the assets of local communities to reduce poverty and to enable inclusive growth.

In 2020, the Highland Council will roll out the Early Years Provision for three and four year olds, throughout the Highlands.  In 2019, the provision will roll out in some areas in the Highlands and Wick meets the criteria of being a priority area.

PPP currently provides a childcare service for 0 – 12 years that is a ‘pay as you go’ service with over 100 children registered with the service.  Some children attend daily, some are adhoc.  Children’s age is varied therefore a varied programme of activities to meet and challenge the development skills of children is provided.  It also provides sessions open to the wider public to encourage health, child development, and parent/child development.   The concept is to develop our existing service to provide Government funded Early Years provision for 3 – 4 year olds, while still providing an element of ad hoc and daily childcare.  This will provide a more sustainable long-term childcare provision in the heart of the community.

For more information on the Development Officer post, please see the attached documentation.

To apply for this post, please submit a CV to recruitment@pppwick.org.uk before Monday 26th November at Noon.
