About the Post:

 

This is an excellent opportunity to join a unique team seeking and making placements for children in the care of the local authority. This role does not require a social work qualification but we are looking for someone with a good understanding of children’s needs and how to make a good match.

 

 

The key skill is in negotiating with carers and particularly private providers of both fostering and residential services but the preferred candidate will also need a good understanding of contracting and payment systems and be good with data.
