I am currently recruiting for Social Workers and Senior Social Workers for the referral and assessment team in Windsor and Maidenhead (Achieving for Children). The successful Social Worker must have the ability to maintain judgement and balance a caseload within a referral and assessment environment; including section 47s in a fast paced environment.

Having, in the last year, been taken into the fold of the successful trust Achieving for Children, the service has gone from strength to strength, operating in the Pods system: Assessment Team taking referrals at the front door, then passing to the generic Pods to teams to give continuity of service to users, and maximise the experience for families coming through the service.

Training is funded for post qualified workers, eg. Practice Educators and Special Assessment Training; Achieving for Children has been up and running for three years, and in that time they have established a reputation as one of the leading Children’s Services providers in the country. They are one of the Department for Education’s eight ‘Partners in Practice’, tasked with leading improvement across the sector.

Benefits of authority:

  • Up to £8K relocation package
  • Pension contributions
  • Minimum of 27 days paid annual leave, plus bank holidays
  • Mapped career progression, and extensive funding for training
  • Discounts on retail, travel and more!
  • Agile and remote working, including the provision of work iPads and more

As a Child Protection Social Worker, you will be:

  • HCPC registered
  • Eligible to work in the UK
  • Car Driver Essential

If this role isn’t right for you, we also offer £500 referral bonus to anyone recommended over whom we successfully place.
