Development Support Workers X 4

North Edinburgh Support Services (NESSie) will create a team of 4 Development Support Workers (one hosted by each of the consortium's partners).

We are looking for four new Development Support Workers to create a new and innovative team to lead an exciting consortium project with partners Fresh Start (FS), North Edinburgh Arts (NEA), Move On (MO), and Spartans Community Football Academy (SCFA). We are developing a new North Edinburgh Support Service (NESSie) to reach those most at risk of the long-term negative outcomes of poverty and disadvantage. The work will be led by a cross-organisational team employed by and based within FS, NEA, MO, and SCFA. Each consortium member will host a worker but the team of four will work as a team to deliver the vision of NESSie.

The Consortium partners deliver a broad programme of activities and opportunities across North Edinburgh. These are funded, organised, and led by staff teams in each organisation. This new DSW team role will work across sectors and organisations to identify those most at risk, support them in developing their own support pathways, and provide ongoing 1:1 support to implement their identified pathway including supporting them to engage with consortium-led and other local opportunities on offer.

Vision for NESSie:

The NESSie project aims to create a “no wrong door” approach to people seeking support, advice, and access to services.

Closing date: Monday 22 August.
