Social Workers - Care Management Service
We are looking for experienced, enthusiastic and ambitious social workers to work in our care management teams.
The teams play a vital role in continuing the child's journey when cases are transferred from the Assessment Service and where longer term involvement is needed to resolve concerns about children's welfare.
The team provides social work services to children and their families to safeguard and promote their welfare. Your role will be to implement child protection and child in need plans, support looked after children, and to escalate cases through legal proceedings when required, liaising with partners within and without the council as necessary to ensure that services are provided efficiently and effectively. You'll manage complex cases, planning intervention and support in a timely manner and, at all times, making sure that children's voices are heard and recorded consistently.
We'll also expect you to contribute to the team - helping us develop and improve standards and quality, helping us to achieve the best possible outcomes for our children and their families.
In return, we will give you the time and support you need to make a difference. Though we're not complacent, we believe that our training, development and support is among the best in London - and we have plenty more in store for 2017. We are driving down caseloads and investing heavily in better IT and mobile working technology to help staff spend more quality time doing what matters.
We offer a GBP2,500 recruitment allowance with your first salary and an annual GBP2,500 retention payment thereafter, subject to conditions. Other benefits include 22-30 days of annual leave, an affordable housing scheme and a relocation package of GBP7,500.
