Our amazing children and young people, and our highly motivated children’s workforce across the partnership, make Derbyshire an energetic, exciting and friendly place in which to live and work. 

Your post will be based in one of the most beautiful areas of the country – Derbyshire has rugged moorlands and limestone dales with historic market towns and pretty villages.  It is home to the Peak District National Park which is the world’s second most visited National Park, attracting tourists and those who enjoy the great outdoors. 

We are looking to recruit within Derbyshire’s Early Help Development Team. Sat within Children’s Services, the Early Help Development Team is in place to support partners to develop and deliver early help interventions, to support communities to develop, deliver and sustain support to children and young people, and to connect young people aged 16-18 with support to enable them to be in education, employment or training.

We are recruiting 1 x  full time Employment and Education Officer post to support the South Derbyshire Dales and South Derbyshire Locality.

Employment and Education Officers fulfil Derbyshire's statutory duty to monitor 16-18 year olds who are not in education, employment or training, or whose educational provision is unknown. They work closely with schools, colleges and training providers to ensure that young people are connected to the right provision at the earliest opportunity. We've performed really strongly in this area over the last year - and this saw us in the top quintile of performance nationally.

For further information about this role, please contact Chris Caley, Head of Service Early Help, chris.caley@derbyshire.gov.uk

Provisional interview date: 30 September 2022 (please note this is provisional and subject to change)
