We have a passionate workforce who are committed to supporting children and young people to feel safe, healthy, happy and ready to learn and achieve. We respect everyone as equally valued members of our community by listening to their views and using their opinions to help shape our services.
Are you the right person to help us to develop a brighter future for our children?
If you share the ethos of Redcar and Cleveland’s Children and Families Directorate, this could be the opportunity you are looking for.
Our aspiration is to give the children and young people within the South Tees region the best possible start in life and, although we are proud of our journey so far, we recognise there is always more to do.
We are looking to appoint a Team Manager with the relevant skills and abilities to deliver a multi-agency safeguarding first contact service.
Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, together with Middlesbrough Council and Cleveland Police have developed a Multi-Agency Children’s Hub.
We are seeking to recruit a Team Manager who is the best in their field and driven by delivering the best possible safeguarding services.
Working as part of a wider management team, you will manage a diverse team which will provide the ‘front door’ services (which include safeguarding and early help) on behalf of both Redcar & Cleveland and Middlesbrough.
As the successful candidate, you will support the Service Manager to deliver an efficient and effective first contact service for all enquiries and referrals into the Children and Families Service; including the provision of accurate and timely information, advice and guidance, and referrals to the appropriate level of service from early help to specialist and safeguarding provision.
You will be a seasoned professional social worker with a final Professional Social Work Qualification e.g. BA SW. You will have knowledge of the legislative framework for Children’s Services and knowledge of the continuum of need for children and young people.
You will possess excellent communication skills and be able to drive change and implement improvements. With the ability to maintain a strong team ethos and a goal-orientated approach, you will gain and maintain the respect of key partners. You will be politically aware and be able to work effectively with Senior Managers, Elected Members and a diverse range of professional colleagues.
The post offers a competitive salary and employee benefits, including Local Government Pension Scheme, employee discounts, and flexible working. We will provide you with a comprehensive induction programme, dedicated supervision and a range of great CPD opportunities as well as further management development.
