  • Norfolk Child Protection & Community Advocate
    Advocacy | Closing date Monday 13th February 2017

    We are looking for a new advocate to join our established team. The service is to provide advocacy to children and young people involved in Child Protection procedures and those who are looked after and leaving care. Advocates will be required to support children and young people in a range of settings and locations within and outside the Norfolk County borders. Applicants will therefore need to work with a degree of flexibility to accommodate short notice referrals and changing circumstances which occur in children’s lives. Some posts will be based at our new local office in the Norwich area, and due to the size of the County, some applicants will be largely but not exclusively working from home. This will be discussed further at interview.
