About the role
New and exciting opportunity, for two practitioners to join our Video Interactive Guidance team in East Sussex Early Help Service, one post will be full time at 37 hours per week and the other post will be part-time for 30 hours per week. The post will be hybrid working, with working from home and an office based pattern.
Video Interaction Guidance (VIG) is a strengths-based, brief intervention that promotes attunement, sensitivity, and mentalization in relationships. The principles and practice can be used to work within any relationship.
VIG is effective with parents and carers of children across all ages (including babies and unborn babies).
The successful post holders will be provided with full training and equipment to carry out this role and will join a team of four practitioners managed from within our Early help Service. You will work with a variety of families across East Sussex, with an increased focus on families within the perinatal period.
At East Sussex County Council, we also offer a diverse range of benefits to help and support you during your employment. More information can be found on our benefits page - benefits page.
The best thing about working for East Sussex is knowing every person who works here cares about our residents and wants to achieve the best outcomes for them. Casey, Project Officer
