Kinship & Fostering Social Worker in a Good Local Authority
Work in a Local Authority which has been rated Good by Ofsted
A London based Local Authority is looking to take on an experienced Social Worker within their Fostering service, which is largely composed of permanent staff who have been there for more than a couple of years. As it is a very stable service Social Workers in the team are able to work autonomously and without the need to be micro managed, which has really been one of the key factors why Social Workers in the team are keen to stay on. Furthermore there is a strong supportive culture within the team with new members of staff and locums being given the opportunity to integrate into the team and made to feel welcome.
The post is predominantly focused around the assessment of Foster and Kinship Carers and as such you will be carrying out SGO's and Viability assessments. However, the way that you structure your day is predominantly up to you as you will be given the accessibility you require to be able to work from home.
To be considered for this post you should have experience within a Fostering / Kinship team and should also have experience of completing SGO's and Viability assessments.
