A unique opportunity has arisen to join a genuinely quality driven and progressive Independent Fostering Agency based in Kent. This role will suit a qualified and personable Social Worker with experience of working in a fostering or looked after children's team, who is keen to work for an organisation that is sincerely child focused.

The successful candidate will recruit, assess and support Foster Carers to maintain a quality fostering service for looked after children across Kent.

You will:

  • Be required to work on a flexible basis

  • Be available to answer emergency calls outside of office hours.
  • Be HCPC registered and social work qualified
  • Ideally Kent or South East London based.

You will have:

  • A flexible approach to working
  • Proven fostering experience
  • Outstanding people skills

We are open to receiving applications from candidates who are currently working in a children and families or looked after children's team as well as those who are currently within fostering looking for a change. If you are Newly Qualified you must have fostering or LAC placement experience and hold current HCPC registration to be considered.

In return for your skills we are able to offer a competitive salary of between GBP23,420 - GBP30,618 per annum and you will have access to a generous pension scheme, paid expenses plus laptop and mobile phone.
