Supervising Social Worker - Home Based covering Essex

Excellent home based opportunity for you to join a well established small IFA with an excellent reputation of putting time into their foster carers. The IFA recruits a wide variety of foster carers to be able to provide appropriate and well suited placements for children in need.

The Independent Fostering Agency provides stable placements for children throughout Essex- they have a robust selection and matching process to ensure that placements are built to last.

The role will suit someone who has strong experience in fostering and able to generate strong rapport and understanding of the foster carers needs. You will have strong experience in developing resilient foster carers with a deep understanding of the needs of looked after children.

The role will encompass the recruitment, training, assessment and supervision of foster carers, so you will be working with people at all stages during their fostering journey.

Low Caseloads

With low caseloads and more time to dedicate to your carers, this role allows you to form strong, appropriate relationships with your carers so that you have a deeper understanding of their needs and capabilities.

You will be supervising fewer than 10 cases located throughout Essex, which means that you can dedicate more time to the carers and provide the appropriate levels of care and supervision.

Flexible working

We understand that everyone works differently. In this role you will have the autonomy of running your own diary. You will have a mobile phone and laptop so that you can work from home and still be connected.

To be considered for the role, you must:

* Be HCPC registered
* Have solid supervising social worker / link worker experience
* Be able to drive
* Be passionate about fostering
