This is a really exciting opportunity for an experienced/senior Children’s Social Worker to work with young people subject to Safeguarding, including those subject to Child Sexual Exploitation, Child Criminal Exploitation and children missing from home. You will have the opportunity to work intensively with young people throughout their journey with us, network with other agencies and support other Social Workers in their work with these young people.
We work closely with our partners to deliver a co-ordinated, high quality service to young people at risk of exploitation and our local arrangements to review children at risk of exploitation support best practice. We have the benefit of being co-located with the police in Barnsley which makes joint working very achievable.
Barnsley has been rated GOOD by OFSTED and we have high aspirations to achieve the very best outcomes for vulnerable children and young people residing in the borough. This means supporting Social Workers to develop excellent assessment and analytical skills, apply evidence based interventions and develop the confidence and skills to make timely decisions and plans for young people that will achieve positive and sustainable outcomes for their future.
