Consultant Social Worker - Management vacancies

Due to a recent expansion within an Assessment Team within a highly regarded Local Authority I currently have a rare opportunity available.

You will have the option to join an Authority which for many years has had their Ofsted come back as good - outstanding. For you as a manager it will give you the support to help develop the service and Social Workers beneath you to an even higher level.

This role will include holding a small caseload of complex work while transitioning into a management position. You will be a role model for good social work practice and use your experience to develop less experienced staff. You will need to have a passion for achieving better outcomes for vulnerable children and their families and this will be demonstrated through applying theory and research to frontline practice.

Your enthusiasm for continued professional development will be put to the test as you make the transition into your first management role.

A successful candidate will have:

  • Comprehensive knowledge of the challenges associated with working with Children on the front line.
  • Sufficient experience of staff supervision.
  • A professional Social Work Qualification.
  • HCPC registration.

This is an authority where staff tend to stay long term, testament to the impact of lower caseloads and the development opportunities available to all within the service.

What NonStop Care offers:

  • Your own designated consultant and one point of contact
  • CV review service
  • Interview advice and preparation
  • Consultants with Social Work experience
  • A supportive team who can always deal with your queries
  • IR35 Advice

What I offer:

  • As the Senior Consultant for the East of England I have obtained a number of contacts, meaning you will have access to more job roles than your typical recruitment agency
  • I work directly with Local Authorities meaning I can discuss your CV with line managers ensuring quicker feedback and hopefully placements for you
  • For more information please contact Charles Crane on or send me an email on: . CV must be in word format.

If you're not interested at the moment perhaps you know someone who is? We offer a referral fee of GBP200 in high street vouchers; you could make a friend very happy and have some extra cash for yourself.
