Working in Lambeth will probably be the toughest but most rewarding job in your career. As our retention statistics show, once you arrive, you won?t want to leave! At Lambeth, our Team Managers are driving change by empowering and inspiring our team to get the best outcomes for children, young people and their families. We?re now looking for Team Managers to continue the improvements recognised by Ofsted in our 2018 inspection.
Lambeth is a great place for both new and experienced team managers. A Lambeth team manager is the leader for their team, ensuring that the team?s work is purposeful, that risk is managed well and intervention is only undertaken when it is in the child?s best interests. Our clear, systemic Children at the Heart of Practice framework (see below) puts the focus back on relationship-based social work and you?ll be supported to embed this through bespoke training and access to improvement support.
We currently have 1 team manager vacancy in the Child Protection Conference service.

You will be accountable for the performance of your team and we have high expectations, but you will also have real autonomy to make the changes you see fit. A creative problem-solver, your can-do approach and commitment to quality will inspire your team to achieve excellence.
