Wirral is home to vibrant, energetic and engaged communities, people who take real ownership of their local area and are passionate about making Wirral a better place. The council and its partners have pledged to #BeTheDifference.

We’ve got ambitious targets to meet by 2025. To achieve everything we have promised to our residents, we need people who are driven and ready to deliver the very best for our communities - #BeTheDifference.

School Readiness Workers provide a critical service to the children and families in Wirral.

You would be based at Seacombe Childrens Centre, which is the Early Childhood Service Hub for Wallasey, and would also provide services across the locality in other community venues. You will deliver a range of different support and interventions to ensure that children thrive and are ready for learning, reading for school and ready for life. This could be providing courses such as Baby Massage to encourage bonding and attachment, or speech and language support (for example). We are committed to ensure we support our parents and carers with additional home learning ideas that also enhance a child's life. School Readiness Workers also work with families to listen to their voice and opinions which helps to shape the service we offer. 

We will ensure that we provide you with training, guidance and support to enable you to develop in your role and provide a high quality service to Wallasey families.

We are looking for someone who is dedicated and passionate about Early Years and Being the Difference to children and families.

You'll need to be qualified in Early Years/Childcare and have experience working with children and families.

Above all you will be looking to improve the way we engage with our employees/residents/customers to ensure they are at the heart of everything we do.
