The Bromley caseload promise has become a reality, Social Workers in the Safeguarding and Care Planning team have an average caseload of just 12-15 children which allows you the time to focus on undertaking quality Social Work.  You will have the time to focus on the child as well as yourself,  your 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.

 

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 induction programme upon joining us, manageable caseloads, you will work in a small cluster team containingjust five Social Workers/Seniors and 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.
