Senior Supervising Social Worker - Edinburgh

Excellent opportunity for an experienced qualified social worker in family placement.

You will be joining a well established charity as a Senior Supervising Social Worker. The role will encompass working with foster carers throughout their fostering journey. You will complete assessments of potential foster carers, deliver Skills to Foster training and support foster carers with young people in placement. The broad role means that you will have variety in each working day, where you will have the autonomy to manage your own time.

The organisation has an excellent reputation for developing their staff. This would suit a Supervising Social Worker looking to take a step up in their career. You will have a gradual transition into a Senior post, where you will be supporting other members of staff.

The charity has ongoing training for their staff- from core social work topics to management training as you move up the career ladder.

You will also benefit from having a low caseload of around 10 families. This will allow you to spend quality time with your caseload of foster carers and develop a strong working relationship with them which is unique for each household.

Requirements

* Experience as a Supervising Social Worker in a fostering team
* Have an in depth understanding of fostering legislation
* HCPC or GSCC registration
* Form F experience
