Administrator - Peripatetic 21413

Job Description

We have an exciting opportunity to join us as a Peripatetic member of the team, covering multiple sites to support the vital work in our Children's Centres.  Your workbase will be at one of our Children’s Centre clusters listed below. 


Our Centres are hugely important in ensuring the families in our local communities are able to access free services from pregnancy to five years. These include the options to attend different activities and sessions, antenatal education and baby massage. We also have Antenatal and Health Visitor Clinics along with various educational courses for people to join – it’s a great place to work!


The role

For the majority of the time you would be working across different centres in different locations, undertaking an exciting and diverse workload. Due to the nature of the role and locations covered, you'll need to be able to drive and have regular access to a vehicle. As this is a customer facing role, you'll work in the office full-time and you'll also require an enhanced DBS check.

If this sounds like the place for you, we’d love to hear from you and are happy to chat through your current experience or answer questions. Please email

Our Offer

In addition to a competitive salary and local government pension scheme, we have a wealth of benefits to be enjoyed by you! These include a generous holiday entitlement starting at 25 days plus bank holidays (and the chance to buy an additional 5 days), flexible working hours, access to many staff discounts and a first class health and wellbeing package. Learning and development is also part of our everyday, so there’ll be opportunities to undertake a range of training and qualifications too. We really do have everything covered.
