About the Job

Administrator (Separating Parents)
This post has been developed as part of a partnership project, led by Relate Leeds,
to provide support to parents and their families who are going through separation.
The project will be working in Gipton, Harehills and Richmond Hill, working with a
range of organisations including Relate Leeds, Shantona Women’s Centre, Leeds
Counselling, Children’s Centres and other services supporting parents and families.

The post will be linked to Leeds CAB’s Children’s Centres Advice Service which is
delivering advice sessions in over 30 centres across Leeds and will provide
administrative support to the Separating Parents project which delivers advice
sessions in community settings accessible to the targeted client group including
Children’s Centres.

The service will offer generalist advice to clients and it is anticipated that the majority
of enquiries will be about Benefits and Debt issues, in line with our other outreach
services.
