A comprehensive and rewarding benefits and relocation package is available for the successful candidate.

Torbay is now progressing well in its improvement journey working in partnership with Hampshire County Council, as the DfE appointed improvement partner. This is an exciting opportunity to work in a beautiful area of the country alongside one of the highest performing authorities in England. Following their most recent monitoring visit, OFSTED concluded that the 'Senior Leadership Team is now well placed to continue to deliver the ambitious and well targeted plan.' As part of our improvement journey, we are looking to recruit Assistant Team Managers to a number of key teams, including Safeguarding and Supporting Families and Single Assessment.

We consider Assistant Team Managers to be a crucial element of our improvement journey. You will be required to assist Team Managers in the management of a small team of dedicated and committed social work practitioners, support good performance and robust quality assurance processes and act as a mentor to less experienced colleagues so that they develop the skills needed to support families to build resilience and facilitate positive change. You will have a minimum of two years' post qualifying experience working with children and families, within current legislation and government initiatives.

You will receive a competitive salary, subsidised parking, good administrative support and all the cutting edge technology you need to undertake this rewarding role. You will be part of an experienced and supportive management team alongside the potential to be part of our talent management programme.
