“Sharing ideas for positive change and better outcomes”
The London Borough of Barking and Dagenham are looking for dedicated and creative Team Managers to join our Assessment Service. The Assessment Teams are key to our safeguarding duties, working with children in need or who are subject to protection plans or looked after. We use the single assessment to develop a plan for the children that sets out the involvement of professionals and family members. We place the wishes and feelings of the children at the heart of our practice, so your team will encourage and support the involvement of children, parents and carers in attending meetings and making plans. And, you will look at ways to help parents to develop and improve their parenting skills so that they can care for their children within a safer and happier home environment. You will ensure that children and families receive assessments and services relevant to their needs and that the highest professional standard are applied and managed within budget. You’ll be managing and supporting staff and working with partners to deliver the best possible outcomes for local children and their families. In return, 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. 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. Other benefits include a generous pension package, 27-30 days of annual leave and affordable housing scheme in addition to a relocation package of £7,500.
