Full Time
TACT, the UK's largest fostering and adoption charity now has over 500 dedicated carers, who look after over 600 children and young people across the country. Our reputation and growth rests upon our strength in providing successful placements. As a charity, we do not have shareholders who receive profits and we invest all of our surplus income into service, staff, carers, and children's development.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a national non-profit making organisation at a local level. We are interested in individuals for whom quality of service is paramount and in those who share our commitment to working in partnership with children and their foster carers in the development of the agency.

The successful candidate must be based in Fife, Dundee or the East of Scotland to allow for an easy commute to carers.

The overall purpose of this role is to recruit, assess, train and support a diverse range of foster carers and placements.

You will need to be DipSW, CSS or CQSW qualified and registered with the SSSC. An enhanced PVG disclosure is also required and is requested for you by TACT.

You will be required to be on an out of hours' rota and you will be paid an out of hours' allowance of GBP1,500 per annum once participating. You will also receive a GBP500 homeworking allowance.
