Are you looking for an exciting, new challenge working in the heart of South London?

You also have the added value of being able to attend training and development sessions at The Children’s Trust.
The successful candidate must have experience of working in a health, social or education setting with children and knowledge of difficulties related to disability. Brilliant communication skills are essential for this role as you will be need to be sensitive to the families in need. You must also have excellent organisational and problem solving skills and be proficient with Microsoft office (particularly Word, Excel and PowerPoint).
You will be employed by The Children’s Trust and be part of the exciting development of our Brain Injury Community Service consisting of Brain Injury Specialists in NHS major trauma centres and a multidisciplinary team based in Tadworth, Surrey.
