Are you ready to take the next step in your career?
Following a redesign of our family support services we are looking for enthusiastic experienced senior practitioners who are committed to support and protect children, young people and families in need of longer term services.
Our redesign has reduced the size of our teams and increased the capacity of our team managers and service manager to allow greater support and oversight of cases.
We are looking for social workers and senior practitioners who are experienced and confident enough to work autonomously to ensure children and families are supported, to be creative and empowered to promote change and positive outcomes for children and young people and be committed to our journey of improvement.
If you are passionate about the outcomes for children, are committed to direct work and want to make a difference in the life of a child we want to hear from you!
We are always on the lookout for experienced, talented, enthusiastic Social Workers ready to take the next step in their career.
What We Offer:
- Accessible management support and regular reflective supervision
- Excellent training opportunities and an established CPD programme
- Generous annual leave entitlement – 25 days rising to 30 after 5 years’ service
- Flexible working to enable work life balance
- Relocation packages of up to £8,000
