We're hiring: Signposting & Guidance Lead (2 positions)

Our dream is that every child in the capital has the essential things they need to thrive, and that everyone can play a part in achieving that goal.

Are you passionate about tackling child poverty and motivated by Little Village’s values of Love, Solidarity, Thriving and Sustainability? Do you believe in our model of bringing families together to help each other? Would you enjoy working in the fast-paced environment of a small, ambitious and relatively new organisation?

The Signposting & Guidance Programme is a growing initiative for Little Village, and we are looking for two people to join the team and offer quality signposting/guidance and supervision of volunteers, and to support the development of the service. You’ll largely be supporting families based in north, east or southeast London, but the work will be carried out remotely.

You’ll have substantial experience of offering signposting and guidance in money, housing, benefits or welfare, or a related area. You’ll be passionate about tackling child poverty and motivated by Little Village’s values.

We have 2 positions available for this role, up to a total of 35 hours per week. We anticipate each job requiring 14-21 hours per week. The roles will be offered on 12-months fixed term contract basis, starting in February 2023. The salary is £25,000 (FTE) gross, and the successful candidates will require a DBS check.

We are working towards a goal where our team fully reflects that diversity and difference in lived experiences and strongly encourage applications from under-represented groups including: people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds, LGBTQ+ people, people with disabilities, people with lived experience of poverty either personally or through family, experience of the care system, non-graduates and first-in-family graduates. As part of our commitment to fairer recruitment, all applications will be assessed without names and any protected characteristics.

The deadline is 4th January 2023 at 9am and all the information on the role and how to apply is here.
