Further information

An opportunity has arisen for a team manager to join Hartlepool's Through Care Team. Whilst ideally, we are looking for a qualified team manager with excellent leadership skills this would also be an ideal opportunity for an ambitious practitioner who wants to step up into management, given that there is a second team manager who supports half of the team, offering valuable peer support. We want someone with passion, enthusiasm, drive, and commitment to achieving the very best outcomes for children and young people looked after and those who have left care.

The candidate will have experience in acting as a positive corporate parent and working with children looked after and care leavers and will possess a social work qualification at degree or diploma level (or equivalent). Previous experience of supervising staff, allocating work, and performance management, and possession of a management or leadership qualification would be an advantage.

We are committed to providing high quality services to children who are looked after and care leavers and offer an excellent working environment which values supervision and training and provides opportunities for professional development.

The successful applicant will be required to undertake an enhanced Disclosure & Barring check (previously known as a CRB check).

For an informal discussion, please contact Karen Douglas-Weir (Head of Services for looked after children) on (01429) 505588.
