Permanent Social Worker/Senior Practitioner – Safeguarding and Support Team
Salary: £43,860 – £48,819
About the Service
The Safeguarding & Support Service invites applications from qualified and child-focused social workers at Senior Practitioner level. The service plays a vital role in continuing the child’s journey when cases are transferred from the Assessment Service and where longer-term involvement is needed. This is a busy and supportive service working with children and young people subject to child protection and children in need plans including Public Law Outline pre-proceedings work, as well as initiating care proceedings.
The ideal candidate will need to be a resilient and authoritative practitioner who places children and young people and their welfare at the heart of your practice. You’ll manage complex cases, planning intervention and support in a timely manner and, always, making sure that children and young people’s voices are heard, positively influence your practice, and recorded consistently. This will include liaising effectively and efficiently with both internal and external partners to ensure that children and young people are safe. Therefore, your written and verbal communication would be second to none and you would be used to providing high quality, evidence-based assessments.
You will support your Team Manager in developing the team, e.g., supporting and mentoring ASYE and less experienced colleagues, and helping to implement and drive a high-performance culture. In return, you will be given the time and support you need to make a difference. Alongside our generous learning and development offer, we offer a competitive salary package which includes a recruitment & retention payment and relocation offer (subject to eligibility, terms and conditions). We are actively working to reduce caseloads across the service and provide mobile working technology so that you spend more time with children and young people, doing what really matters.
