We are seeking to appoint an experienced Social Worker to join the recently created Youth Offending and Targeted Support Service in Stockton-on-Tees.

Utilising core social work skills, you will deliver the full range of youth justice case management responsibilities, predominantly with complex needs and risks, ensuring that all activity has regard to public protection, reducing likelihood of offending and safeguarding.

You will also deliver targeted support interventions to young people and families working within the Council’s early help framework, including those on the thresholds of statutory social care interventions.

You will have a sound working knowledge of children’s and youth justice legislation, safeguarding, risk management, inter-agency policies and procedures and current developments in children's services and will act as a point of reference for specialist social care knowledge and skills.

You will be expected to be a team player and able to work across agency boundaries. As part of an evolving Early Help service, you will be flexible and adaptable to organisational change.

Due to the role requiring frequent travel between venues across the borough, a full driving licence and access to a motor vehicle is required for this role.

For detailed information on this role, please refer to the Job Description and Person Specification.

For a further informal discussion, please contact Sheila Whitehead, Operational Team Manager, on 01642 527597.

Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council ensures that all customers, both internal and external receive a consistently high quality level of service.
