Better Start Bradford is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund until March 2025 to help children in Bowling and Barkerend, Bradford Moor and Little Horton get the best start in life. We deliver over 20 projects for expectant families and families with children aged 0-3, including support before, during and after birth, reading, play, healthy cooking and eating and English language skills.

As Workforce Development Manager you will oversee the development of the volunteer and paid maternity and early years workforce across the Better Start Bradford area. Many of our projects work with volunteers, paid staff and para-professionals and the role is responsible for working with those projects to ensure the effective delivery and the quality of support, supervision, and training.
You will work collaboratively with partner organisations responsible for 0-3s and their parents in the Better Start Bradford area to agree and introduce an integrated workforce strategy, and will co-ordinate the administration, delivery, monitoring and evaluation of our innovative ‘Learning Together’ programme. You will also be expected to be present in workforce forums and strategic groups alongside our key partners.
You will oversee all our learning events including Baby Week Bradford, online/in person conferences and webinars, and podcast episodes. You will also be responsible for developing a knowledge and dissemination strategy to effectively share the learning from the Better Start Bradford programme.
