Job description

We are looking for a Social Worker to join our Children in Care and Placements Team

This role requires a Social Work Qualification with a minimum of 3 years post qualified experience in Frontline and Children Looked After work.

About the team

The team consists of a small group of social workers that report to a senior practitioner. Their work includes assessment, care planning, and permanency planning for children and young people, both of whom are in care proceedings, as well as children who are looked after following final court orders.

They are responsible for progressing work within the statutory framework for Looked After Children, which involves ensuring Looked After Children reviews, personal education planning meetings, and Looked After Children medicals are progressed within statutory timescales.

Sometimes the team works with a cohort of unaccompanied asylum-seeking children and will be expected to take part in age assessments in their respect.

About you

Knowledge and experience working within a Frontline Team such as Child Protection or Referral and Assessment is essential for this role. You will need to hold a degree within Social Work (Degree/DipSW/CQSW) as well as 3 years post qualifying experience. A Social Work England registration and access to your own vehicle is a requirement.

What's on offer?

* Up to £37 per hour umbrella (PAYE payment options available also)

* Hybrid working arrangements.
