Area Convener
[Highland & Moray]
Voluntary Role
(All reasonable travel and out-of-pocket expenses reimbursed in line with CHS volunteer expenses policy)
Approximately 10-15 hours per week

The Children's Hearings System is Scotland's unique care and justice system for
children and young people in need of care, protection and support.

The Children's Hearings (Scotland) Act 2011 created Area Support Teams (ASTs)
to support Children's Panel members in their local area. There are twenty-two
ASTs across Scotland playing a critical role in the delivery and administration of
the Childrens Panel. ASTs act on behalf of the National Convener in recruiting,
supporting and monitoring panel members locally.

The Area Convener provides leadership and direction to the AST, ensuring that
the AST fulfils its responsibilities to support panel members and carries out the
key responsibilities.

Applicants should be able to demonstrate a strong commitment to and understanding of the ethos, values and principles of the Childrens Hearings System as well as an understanding of the role of panel members.

For more information about the role and/or an application pack please contact Anne Munro by email at anne.munro@chs.gsi.gov.uk or by telephone on 0131 244 4734.

The deadline for the return of completed applications is Friday 03 May 2019.
