This role is currently based from home due to COVID 19 until further notice. Peabody plans to move to a hybrid model of working which means that once our office refurbishment has been completed, the role will be full-time (Central London) and part home based.
Purpose of the role:
We are looking for an experienced, confident communicator to engage with customers, Ofsted, colleges, schools, early years settings and training staff.
You will support the Childcare Initiatives Manager with the recruitment of customers to childcare learning programmes and services, including processing referrals and arranging placement interviews and apprenticeship work trials.
You will be responsible for arranging childcare events, marketing and outreach work with customers to ensure they receive appropriate information about learning programmes, apprenticeships, business management and mobile crèche services.
You will promote childminding as a childcare choice and profession and provide information and support about our accredited childcare programmes. You will also assist in the setting up and coordination of the childminding mentoring programme and mobile crèche service.
You will need excellent administrative skills, along with a sound knowledge of either the childcare, early years, youth work, apprenticeships, education or adult learning industry. But most important of all to us is your approach: this is an exciting, dynamic organisation doing amazing work, so we’re looking for people with the enthusiasm and commitment to match our own.
There will be some travel to and from our training centres in London and the need for some flexibility in working hours. The role of the childcare project assistant provides a (one-year fixed term) full-time opportunity for a candidate to develop the relevant skills and knowledge required. This role is covering maternity leave.
Occasionally the post holder will be based at one of Peabody's London based community centres. The community centres hosts a wider team of Peabody specialists working in Hackney, including employment and training staff, neighbourhood managers, welfare benefits advisers and revenues officers.

At Peabody, where possible, we provide flexible working opportunities from day one to our employees, as we recognise the importance of a good work-life balance; and to improve our productivity and performance, we embrace agile working, which means if you are in a desk based role, that will be a hybrid of office and home working. If your role is in a client facing environment, appropriate base location will apply.
Our mission is to help people make the most of their lives and an important part of this is to ensure that our organisation reflects the wider communities we serve. We want to attract recruit and retain a diverse, inclusive and creative workforce to give us the best opportunity to meet the diverse needs of our residents and customers. We actively encourage applications from all groups and communities, as well as from BAME, LGBTQ+ and disabled people.
