Senior Social Worker - Child Protection - Berkshire

We are currently helping a well-supported Local Authority with the recruitment of a Senior Social Worker to join their Child Protection team in Berkshire.

At Sheldon Phillips we work with Qualified Social Workers in all disciplines across the UK to help them secure the job they deserve. As advocates of the Social Work Recruitment Sector we focus on making sure we listen to your requirements when searching for a new opportunity.
We've worked in the industry long enough to know that Social Work can be a challenging yet rewarding sector to work in. Let us take on the responsibility of looking for new opportunities so you can focus on your job.
We work slightly differently to other agencies as the service we provide is a more personal and detailed experience. Lets talk about what you want from your next position and then we'll tell you exactly how we plan to help you acheive it.

This Local Authority in Berkshire will provide an attractive annual salary but in some busy periods you must be prepared for:

• Busy and heavy work loads
• Sometimes having to work unsociable hours
• Having to meet tight deadlines in line with agreed timescales by management

In return for your dedication and hard work you will be rewarded with:

• An annual salary up to GBP44,000 per annum which reflects the busy work load
• A dedicated Recruitment Specialist to offer expert career advice and support you
• Access to FREE CPD Training for your HCPC Registration

For this post in Berkshire you will need to hold an active HCPC Registration, hold a Social Work Qualification and have a minimum of 12 months post qualifying experience in a similar role. The local authority is growing from strength to strength, so over the length of your contract you will see a reduction in case loads and an increase in supervision.
You will be part of a dynamic and proactive team working to ensure that the needs of services users and their families are met.
