PART-TIME POST - 20 hours per month with up to an additional further 23 hours as required to meet the flexible requirements of the role (all hours to be paid at the same rate)

When a child dies it is a devastating loss that profoundly affects all those involved. The process of systematically reviewing the deaths of children is grounded in respect for the rights of children and their families, with the intention of understanding what happened and why, and whether there are any lessons to be learned that might prevent future child deaths.

The Tees Child Death Overview Panel (CDOP) is responsible for ensuring that a review is undertaken of all deaths of children from across the local authority areas of Redcar and Cleveland, Middlesbrough, Stockton and Hartlepool.

The post is a flexible position with required working when a Child Death Occurs, however a minimum of 20 Hours will be guaranteed each month to support CDOP. It is expected the successful candidate will work up to approximately 43 hours over any month.
You will have exceptional organisational skills, minute taking skills, as well as the emotional resilience needed to deal with such a sensitive but important area of service.

The council holds ambassador status for the North East Better Health at Work Award.

We offer very attractive terms and conditions of employment, including generous annual leave entitlement, flexible working hours (where appropriate), membership of the Local Government Pension Scheme and access to numerous other salary sacrifice schemes and staff benefits/discounts, including a lease car scheme.
