We are looking to appoint enthusiastic individuals to join our Children’s Social Care Service as a Family Support Worker. You will be part of delivering first-class social work services for vulnerable children, young people and families.

This role offers the perfect opportunity to undertake focussed and purposeful family support direct in the family home, or other settings as required. Working closely with other highly skilled professionals, you will be part of a small team in our wider service for children and families.

You will benefit from increased co-working with social work colleagues who will have the time to do enhanced face to face social work. You will be encouraged to develop your skills within this role and provided with opportunities for further training and development.

You must be dynamic and be an enthusiastic team player who is passionate about achieving the best outcomes for children in Newcastle.
