Assessment Team Children’s Social Workers

We are currently recruiting experienced Social Workers to join our Assessment Social Work Team; based together in modern accommodation at the Sandhill Centre, Sunderland.

The Company is right in the middle of realising its improvement agenda and we are seeking committed and talented professionals with a number of post qualified years’ experience to join existing colleagues in our unique Company.
You will work directly with and also support children, young people and their families in completing child focused assessments. With proven experience in delivering statutory children’s social care services you will have knowledge of social care children’s legislation and be confident in delivering the best outcomes and decisions on behalf of service users. You must be an excellent team player and be able to form positive relationships with colleagues and partners.

Our Social Work offer is one of the most competitive across the region including a maximum earning potential of £40,052pa for a post qualified worker who has satisfied progression plus for external applicants an additional £1000 TfC retention payment payable on commencement (or after successful completion of the probationary period, if this applies). This is in addition to membership of the LGPS, 20% discount for a Nissan car and a generous annual leave entitlement. We also offer flexible working in order for you to strike that importance balance between your work and home life.

We want you to feel supported and confident to deliver at the highest standards and offer a range of training and development opportunities so that you have the tools to update your skills and knowledge. We also offer manageable caseloads and ensure that all workers are supported through regular supervision and appraisal. Our established Senior Management Team listens to the workforce and recognises their want to make a difference to the lives of our service users.

Child centred, Respectful, Creative and transparent are the values around which the Company has been formed. This is what you can expect from TfC when you join us.
