Are you kind, patient, caring and passionate about helping children and young people disengaged from learning or experiencing difficulty in their lives?  Do children and young people respond well to your support?

We are looking for an enthusiastic and forward thinking Pupil Support Officer who is able to support our work in closing the poverty related attainment gap. This will include supporting our attendance strategy and working with other colleagues and young people and families to provide targeted support. The monitoring of attendance is critical to this role and impacts positively in ensuring every child experiences success in our school.

Preferred candidates will be required to join the PVG Scheme or undergo a PVG Scheme update check prior to a formal offer of employment being made by the City of Edinburgh Council.

We're committed to creating a workplace culture where all our people feel valued, included and able to be their best at work, and we recognise the benefits that a diverse workforce with different values, beliefs, experience, and backgrounds brings to us as an organisation.

Our salary range typically reflects the initial starting salary and annually increases until it reaches the top of the range.
