Early Years Role


Hours: Tuesday – Friday (Part-time and full-time positions available)
Salary: £25,000 FTE
Location: Penzance – some local travel possible

We are searching for the right person for this role. You may have experience within teaching, social work, early years or family work. You will be able to build trust and rapport with children and families from hard to reach backgrounds and have a strong belief in the positive impact of effective early intervention and the passion to make a difference to children’s lives.

Trelya (the Cornish word for ‘change’), is an award-winning charity working to enable positive change in West Cornwall’s most under resourced communities. We know from experience that the children, young people and families living in our communities are unique and skilled individuals with incredible potential. Trelya creates opportunities to fulfil that potential through provision of Skylar (rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted), an award-winning youth work and mentoring programme and ‘Gul,’ which is one of Cornwall’s successful trauma informed employment and training programmes.

Trelya is one of only a few projects that works with young people from prebirth through the life course and our outcomes demonstrate this makes a huge difference to ending the cycle of generational poverty and social exclusion. Trelya recognises the critical role early years’ care and education can play in a child’s development and the importance of excellent practitioners. Skylar delivers the best in early years’ care practice from prebirth to 4 years old, to those who need it most and their families, who would simply not be able to access it otherwise.

Please contact Trelya’s Executive Director – Sharon Rich 07719310263 to discuss this opportunity further.
