This is an exciting time to join Barnsley Children and Family Social Care Service who are looking to recruit highly motivated, enthusiastic and committed professional Social Workers working in the field of Children in Care and Leaving Care. We have high aspirations to achieve the very best outcomes for vulnerable children and young people residing in the borough ensuring that they enjoy the same opportunities as their peers so that they flourish and establish aspirations for their futures.
This means supporting Social Workers to develop excellent relationships with the children and all partners that are involved in the care planning process. We will support Social Workers to build on their existing assessment and analytical skills, applying evidence-based interventions and develop the confidence and skills to make timely decisions and plans for children that will achieve positive and sustainable outcomes for their future.
Developing our Social Workers is a key priority for us and you will be joining a highly motivated team who benefit from regular supervision, appraisal, training and development opportunities aimed at promoting outcomes for children and supporting career development.
