The successful candidate will have post qualifying experience.  Will be skilled at listening to the voice of the child.  Be able to work effectively alongside parents and carers, other professionals internally and externally and recognises the value in multi-agency working, to deliver the best service possible to disabled children and their families.

We recognise that each disabled child’s, lived experience is unique, each child’s needs and family’s needs are individual to them.  We are therefore seeking a qualified and skilled Social Worker who can be adaptive and flexible in their approach in assessing and identify need, and then be able to plan packages of care and support to meet that need.  If this is you, we are keen to hear from you.

We’re revising our workforce strategy to support this and investing in additional resources to create manageable workloads, with an emphasis on working together in a supportive team environment. 
We are expanding our social work teams, introducing new team structures and expanding our help and support (early help) offer, making up an extensive offer to families across Children’s Services.
We’ll support you to flourish and be the best you can, delivering high-quality services and working closely with professionals from a range of agencies to improve the lived experience of children. 
In addition to excellent career progression opportunities, with a clear and supported development path, we also offer agile working, with flexible and family friendly policies, that have a work/life balance at their core, plus lots, lots more…as you can see below.
