Medway has embarked on introducing Signs of Safety as our practice model - we are keen to develop our strengths and relationship-based practice. We are aspirational for our children and young people in care and want the very best for them. We want children and young people to fully participate in decisions about their lives and their future and we want them to stay connected to their family and network (where it is safe to do so).
We are looking for a Case Progression Officer who has children at the very heart of all they do. You will have the ability to develop strong professional relationships that support quality practice for our children and young people and be confident to challenge when this is not the best it can be.
This role will be responsible for driving good practice and quality assurance through quality assuring, monitoring, measuring and tracking progression of court related cases.
You will have a minimum of 5 years’ experience of social work with strong experience in working with child protection or looked after children. Significant experience and understanding of Family Court and PLO is essential.
The role forms part of the wider Safeguarding and Quality Assurance Service in Medway and very much has a part to play in the quality assurance of practice for children who are subject to Public Law Outline (PLO) and Care Proceedings.
In return for your commitment, we are proud to offer an excellent benefits package
