Work from Home as a Supervising Social Worker

A Local Authority based in the Greater Manchester region is looking for an experienced Social Worker to join their Fostering Service. The vacancy is a result of a member of staff relocating to another region of the country and as such are unable to commute to the area. Currently the Local Authority are keen to get someone in post ASAP and thus are looking for a locum member.

This is an assignment within a largely stable service where the managers are employed on a permanent basis and turnaround of staff is very low, this is predominantly because of the way caseloads are controlled and the flexibility offered to social workers in the team who are able to work from home and compress their weekly hours. This is a locum friendly team effectively meaning that locums who join the team are able to benefit from the training and development usually only reserved for permanent members of staff. Furthermore locums in the team benefit from stability as contract are usually offered for 6 months and this is expected to be made ongoing.

To be considered for this post you should have experience as a Supervising Social Worker.
