Supervising Social Worker - Home-based - Gravesend/Kent

My client, a reputable Independent Fostering Agency is searching for a new Supervising Social Worker to join them in the East Midlands and help continue delivering exceptional service to the children in care in the local area.

As a home-based Supervising Social Worker, you will have complete autonomy in your day to day actions, with just one day of the week working from the regional offices.

You'll help screen, assess, recruit and train future foster carers. Your caseload will consist of some existing carers, but you will display the ability to work autonomously in recruiting new foster carers. With the caseload being smaller than a Local Authority, you'll be able to quickly see results from the hard work and effort you put in to training the Potential Foster Carers (PFC) and the Children within Care.

The Role:

  • Supervising Social Worker in a IFA
  • Will have the chance to grow in the role as the company expands
  • A salary of up to GBP35,000 dependent on experience
  • Committed to delivering quality training and results
  • Based within Gravesend or the surrounding area

Requirements:

  • Experience within an IFA or Fostering Team at a Local Authority
  • Form F experience (desired, but not essential)
  • Ability to work autonomously
  • Hold experience in dealing with complex or challenging cases
  • An ability to empathise to not only the Children in Care, but also the PFC's
  • The desire to work to outcomes that greatly benefit the Children in Care & the PFC's
  • Confident and ambitious in helping shape the company/policy decisions

For a discussion about this role, or other Fostering roles send your CV to Jack Fisher with a brief cover letter, or call for a confidential talk.
