Senior Social Worker - Children's Advice and Support Services (CASS)
Birmingham Children’s Trust continues to go from strength to strength. We are the largest provider of social care services for children, young people and families in the country. Our goal is to become a centre of excellence for all our workforce.
Working in the Trust gives you the opportunity to acquire a diverse set of professional experiences; and exceptional professional development. Children's Advice and Support Services (CASS) provides a specialist area of social work, whereby you have the opportunity to be part of making holistic threshold decisions using the Right Help Right Time threshold document, within tight timescales to ensure that immediate safeguarding concerns are addressed, and any relevant signposting for support is undertaken.
The pace is fast, and at CASS, we cover all of Birmingham, so you can imagine the challenges of progressing over 3000 referrals each month, that number doesn’t include the phone calls we get. We work core hours (8.45am to 5.15 pm Monday to Thursday, 8.45 to 4.15pm on Fridays), and sit with the MASH partner agencies, to continue to develop strong relationships with all those invested in safeguarding children.
There has never been a better time to join Birmingham Children’s Trust and build on your career. If you are ready to make a difference to the lives of children, in a way that develops your skills and knowledge in every area, then CASS is the place for you.
Please note that we have vacancies for both permanent and fixed term positions.
