Supervising Social Worker - IFA - Low Caseload

An exciting and unique opportunity for you to join an independent fostering agency and work to your own schedule. You will be in charge of recruiting your own foster carers, training them and supervising their placements. The IFA received OUTSTANDING for their leadership and management, so you will be a part of a team that invests in you.

The role offers the flexibility of working to your own schedule. You will recruit, train, assess and supervise your own caseload of foster carers.

From the initial enquiry through to placement supervision, you will be the point of contact between the IFA and your foster carers. You will form strong relationships with your carers and the children in place to ensure that placements are suitable and stable. You will also provide an out of hours service for your carers, so flexibility is key.

Training and development

The IFA offers strong support for you in this role from both supervising social worker colleagues as well as managers. You will always have someone to speak to or meet with for supervisions or to ensure you are on the right track.

It is essential that you have direct experience of working with children who have challenging behaviour. The children placed with the IFA will come from a range of traumatic backgrounds and attachment issues.

You will also provide an out of hours service for your foster carers, so flexibility will be key.
