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 newly qualified social workers across a number of key teams, including Children with Disabilities, Fostering and Adoption, Looked After Children, Safeguarding and Supporting Families and Single Assessment.

Good social workers are at the heart of everything we do. You will be required to create positive relationships with families, children and colleagues, demonstrate sound abilities in risk assessment and planning, mediation, negotiation and problem solving.

You will receive good management support with a focus on your professional development, a competitive salary, subsidised parking, the opportunity to be part of a talent management programme, good administrative support and cutting edge technology, to enable you to capture information whilst out in the field and upload onto case management systems automatically.
