Would you like the opportunity to make a real difference to a disabled young person’s life?

Derbyshire County Council is looking for Disabled Children Contract Foster Carers to look after 0 – 18 year
olds who have complex disabilities. Carers are needed to provide full time and short break placements.
Young people may be in need of accommodating by the Local Authority; be ready to move out of residential
settings to family based care or be in need of short breaks to support their full time carers and provide
opportunities outside of their home.

This is a rewarding role for people who enjoy being with disabled children. We are committed to helping all
our young people to reach their full potential. Out foster carers are central to this.

We would like to hear from people who have the skills and experience of working directly with or caring for
young people with disabilities. You will need patience, commitment and time to help them progress and
support their individual circumstances. We are particularly keen to hear from carers who may have an
adapted property or one which, with support, they are willing to adapt to meet the needs of young people.

Carers of the scheme will look after the young person in their own home and the primary carer should not
have other employment or commitments. You will work closely as part of the team around the child.

Carers for the scheme should ideally not have children under the age of 16 living at home, but we may
consider those who have older teenagers. You should also have access to your own transport.

You must be at least 21 years of age to foster for Derbyshire County Council. We welcome Disabled Children
Contract carers from all backgrounds and ethnicity, and you can be single, married, in a civil partnership of in
a same sex relationship.

Disabled Children Contract carers whilst approved by Derbyshire County Council are not employed by the
council. As a self – employed carer, for providing a full time placement, you will receive approximately
£25,140.96 per annum, plus additional allowances dependant on the age of the child in placements. You
would be responsible for paying your own tax and national insurance contributions. For providing short
breaks you would receive approximately £96.69 plus allowances for every day the child is with you.

The Disabled Children Contract Care scheme will provide you with skilled and dedicated support as well as
ongoing training and development opportunities.

If you think you can make a difference we would love to hear from you.

If you are interested in finding out more about the Disabled Children Contract Care scheme please complete
the on line enquiry form at www.derbyshire.gov.uk on the Ask About Fostering Page. Or email us directly on
Fostering.Recruitment@derbyshire.gov.uk and we will get back to you .

Or come along to a recruitment event at County Hall, Matlock. The next event is on Tuesday 19 March 2019,
between 5 – 7 pm (anytime) where you can speak to an existing Disabled Children Contract Carer or a
supervising Social Worker for the scheme.

Derbyshire County Council is embarking on a new approach to the way we deliver services. To provide the 21st
century services local people want and need we must rise to the challenge by thinking and doing things differently,
by not shirking bold decisions or change, and by being commercially-minded in seeking the best results out of
every penny we spend. We call this being an Enterprising Council.

Derbyshire County Council is looking for an enthusiastic, enterprising and experienced laboratory manager to
manage the County Councils ‘in house’ highways laboratory based at Ambergate.

The successful applicant will demonstrate excellent management skills, an in depth knowledge of construction
materials testing, together with a range of onsite client testing requirements, preferably with a relevant engineering
or technical background and have a track record of running a successful commercial operation.
The principle work of the highways laboratory, comprises the testing of materials used in the construction and
maintenance of the County’s 5,300km highway network, however we are keen to develop a more commercial
approach to marketing our laboratory services.

The Highways Service is an ‘early start’ on the journey to an Enterprising Council, and this role will play a critical
part in shaping how the Highways Laboratory delivers on that challenge.
