Supervising Social Worker - Deliver Quality - Permanent role

Interviews this week. Apply now to be considered

Many of the foster carers come from range of backgrounds, so being able to speak another language is an advantage. Urdu and Bengali are strongly desired.

Your role will include completion of Form F assessments, delivering skills to foster training and supervising placements. The culture is based on having a low caseload of very well matched families, which means that you will spend your time delivering further training and getting to know your foster carers well, instead of a reactive culture of firefighting issues and concerns.

About you:

Ideally you will have strong experience as a supervising social worker in an Outstanding organisation. If you do not have experience of working within an Outstanding IFA, then you will have an open mind to work with a fresh approach. The IFA is owned by social workers, who fully understand the stresses of the role, which means that you will not have unrealistic targets but social work will be the core of your role.

Caseload

You will be taking over a caseload across Manchester and Bolton, however there may be further travel needed as necessary, which you can expect from any other role as a supervising social worker.

Duties will include:

* Assessing prospective carers using Form F assessments
* Delivering Skills to Foster training
* Supervising carers in their own home
* Continuous professional development

Requirements for the role:

* Can-do attitude
* A diploma or equivalent qualification and HCPC registration
* Have a car and driving license
* Being able to speak another language is an advantage
