Social Care Children - Qualified
19004380 Requisition #
| Starting salary £28,925 per annum | Permanent Full Time, 37 hours per week | 

You will be supported with good quality supervision and have excellent opportunities for professional development enabling you to manage a varied caseload working with childre
n and their families. We’ll support you to grow your skills and knowledge through secondments with a cross-section of social work teams. As you continue to develop your expertise, there will be new challenges and opportunities both with case work but also as part of the wider organisation, e.g. developing specialist links with partner agencies.

You’ll also build close working relationships with statutory, voluntary and private sector agencies, and could be required to represent Children’s Services in court. Acting as a role model and mentor to less experienced colleagues, you’ll contribute to training initiatives and in-house core training courses. And, proactively maintaining your awareness of changes in child development and related theories, legislation, policies and practices, you’ll share your knowledge and play an active role in maintaining, team-wide, high standards of social work.

With a degree in social work – CQSW, DipSW or equivalent – you must be HCPC registered and have a variety of post-qualification experience of working with children and families. Your experience should cover systemic practice, and you will need an in-depth understanding of legislative and policy frameworks, along with a willingness to learn and develop as a practitioner; being a team player is essential in any social work team.

In return, we offer an attractive benefits package, a competitive salary and a range of professional development opportunities with an ability to explore the breadth of children’s social care.

This post is subject to an Enhanced Disclosure application to the Disclosure and Barring service and registration as a qualified Social Worker with the Health and Care Professions Council.
