“Sharing ideas for positive change and better outcomes”
The London Borough of Barking and Dagenham council has exciting opportunities for Senior Social Workers who would like to join our Assessment Team.
The Assessment Team provides social work services to children and their families to safeguard and promote their welfare. Your in-depth experience will enable you to undertake high quality and timely single assessments and to liaise with partners within and without the council as necessary to ensure that services are provided efficiently and effectively. You’ll manage complex cases, planning intervention and support in a timely manner and, always, making sure that the children’s voices are heard and recorded consistently.
You will also be developing and improving standards and quality, helping us to achieve the best possible outcomes for our children and their families. We believe that our award-winning training, development and support is among the best in London and we will give you the time and support you need to make a difference. Our Senior Social Workers are encouraged to make a difference – helping us develop and improve standards.
In return we will offer you a £5,000 Welcome payment with your first salary payment and £15,000 commitment payment on your 3rd Year anniversary in post. This Allowance is subject to conditions. In year’s 4 or 5 of service, you will be entitled to 2 months paid sabbatical.
