Social Worker-CP-Long Term Contract

GBP30 - GBP35 per hour

Nonstop' s client, a Local Authority based in the South East of England, is looking for a Qualified Social Worker for its Child Protection Team. This is a long term contract, between 6 to 10 months, offering you stability.

In this position, you will do the initial stages of the care proceedings and then pass the cases over to the Court Work Team. This means you won't do as much court work, so the role is less stressful. Also, Ofsted inspected recently their front-line teams and said that the services improved from their last inspection, so you will be part of an improving team that puts a lot of focus on the quality of care delivered to the children.

Ideally, the candidates will have experience in Family Support Teams, Child Protection, Children in Need, Court Teams or Looked After Children. You will also need a Social Work Degree, a HCPC registration and a driving license.

What NonStop Care offers:

  • Your own designated consultant and one point of contact
  • CV review service
  • Social Work Roles throughout the UK
  • 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 South 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
  • Also I understand the market and offer a real insight into the locum or permanent market

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.
