Join us on our journey to excellence.
Children’s Social Care at the London Borough of Bromley is on a journey of change and improvement and we are seeking highly talented and ambitious people to join us.
Over the past 12 months Children’s Social Care at Bromley has changed. We’ve made a huge investment in increasing our staff numbers and lowering our caseloads. As we continue to fill up our teams with permanent staff join us on our journey whilst you still can!
The Bromley caseload promise has become a reality; Social Workers in the Referral and Assessment team have an average caseload of just 12-15 children allowing our staff the time to focus on the child as well as themselves and their own development and career ambitions.
At Bromley we have structured career pathways which start from the Assessed and Supported Year in Employment all the way up to Head of Service so there is no journey too big or too small at Bromley. Newly launched in 2018 Bromley runs an ILM affiliated management development programme for its Team Managers.
You will be joining an ambitious service with strong leadership and clear lines of support. As part of the Bromley Promise there will be a dedicated two week inductionprogramme upon joining us, manageable caseloads, you will manage a small cluster team containing just five Social Workers/Seniors to one Team Manager and you will have dedicated time set aside for quality reflective supervision.
We are confident that with your support, we will continue to provide good social care services to our children in Bromley as set out in our improvement and transformation plan. In return we ask that you bring your passion, dedication and skills to us.
The Bromley Promise:
Manageable caseloads for every Social Worker amongst the lowest in the country
Dedicated time for reflective supervision
Small Cluster teams with one team manager supervising five Social Workers
Two week protected induction programme
Excellent Learning and development opportunities with bespoke training for every social worker
Social Workers and team managers have easy and regular access to the leadership team
