At Wokingham Borough Council, we understand the importance of having great leaders in our Children’s Services. Excellent leaders form the foundations, enabling us to provide the highest possible care for our children. They also help us develop our people to become the best professionals.
We’re currently seeking three enthusiastic Assistant Team Managers to join our Duty Triage and Assessment, Long Term Social Care and Disabled Children’s Teams.
As an Assistant Team Manager, you’ll work alongside the Team Manager to manage a team of social workers. Whilst you won’t be carrying caseloads, you’ll have direct involvement with service users, making a significant impact to the frontline of social work. You’ll use your experience mentoring social workers, to help your team provide great care for children and their families.
We’re determined to continue to develop social workers of the highest calibre and you will play a key role in the development of those under your charge.
We’re looking for experienced social work professionals, ready to take a step-up into a first-time management role - as well as those who already have experience supervising staff.
Your passion and determination will help you make this step up and we will support you through relevant training to make sure you have everything you need to succeed in this role.
We’ll look to you to strive for great outcomes within your team, by supporting staff and finding solutions. Most importantly, we are looking for a determined and innovative individual who wants to help drive our service forward.
If you feel that you have what it takes to stand amongst the very best in the social care sector, then we want to hear from you.
