Now recruiting: Sessional Parent and Carer Engagement Workers

We are looking for people who live in Blackpool to apply for the job role of Parent and Carer Engagement Worker.

  • The role will be based in Blackpool
  • We will agree together the numbers of hours you will work and when. This is called a sessional role.
  • You will be paid £10.44 per hour for every hour that you work.
  • There is no fixed number of hours to work each week. The hours will be agreed together depending on what you would like and what we need at different times. This is called a Casual Contract.

We want Parent and Carer Engagement Workers to help us work with more parents and carers in our projects. Our projects focus on mental health and resilience. They can involve:

  • doing research together
  • having our say about things we think are unfair
  • getting involved in campaigns to change things
  • sharing information through our website, newsletter, blogs and films
  • running training and events

We welcome applications from people who have experienced discrimination in their life.  We think this experience helps us do a better job at understanding what people need to improve things for themselves and everyone.  People may experience discrimination because they live in poverty, have experienced mental health challenges, have a physical disability, learning disability or autism. They might also be from a community experiencing racism, or be from our LGBTQ+ community, or have English as a second language.

Parent and Carer Engagement Workers will use their own experiences of being left out and/or discriminated against, to support others facing similar experiences to take part in our projects.

You can read more information about the role and find the application form in the sidebar on the right(or below on moblies).
