Salary – £21,895 per annum pro rata (full time hours 35 per week)

Home-Start Aberdeen works with families in the local area with complex needs, who have at least one child pre-birth to age 5.  Our vision is for every child in our area to have the best possible start in life. 

We are excited to be recruiting a highly motivated Coordinator to join our small team.  Taking a strength-based and family centred approach, you will manage a case load of supported families and provide support, supervision and training to volunteers working with families.      

You will be an excellent communicator and quickly able to establish and maintain effective relationships with families and volunteers.  You will have a strong understanding of children’s early years development, the importance of attachment and bonding and the potential impact of trauma on children and their parents. You will be flexible in approach and able to multitask with good organisational skills.  Experience of working with families is essential (paid or voluntary) and experience of working with volunteers would be an advantage. You will be required to do home visits to families as part of this role therefore a full UK driving license and access to a car/vehicle for work is required.

More About Us

Get Support

There is no rule book for raising a family and sometimes it can seem overwhelming.  Many parents need friendship and support during these years, when children are young. 

More information


We are very grateful to all the volunteers and organisations who contribute to our work. With a growing requirement for support from city-based families, we are always looking for new volunteers and fundraising support.
