West Yorkshire - Supportive Management - Flexible Working
Social Worker - Yorkshire - Flexible Working & Excellent Management Support
I am currently working with a Local Authority in West Yorkshire, who are offering flexible working hours for experienced Social Workers in their Child Protection & Court Proceedings service. With an aim of bringing in a handful of new staff, they have targeted a maximum of 20 caseloads per social worker once all hires are made, as well as providing consistent supervision to ease the burden of carrying complex caseloads.
Due to the nature of the service and the complexity of some of the cases you will hold, they are ideally looking for someone who has worked in a high pressure environment before. However, they understand the importance of feeling like you are part of a team when working in these situations and as such have dedicated time for each social worker to have case supervision and time to work from home when possible.
As they place a high priority on a healthy work / life balance, this allows for more focused and effective working patterns as well as happier staff, you will be able to lean on the service for support and have your managers ear when looking to work from home.
As a council they are able to offer:
- Flexible working hours and potential to work from home as and when caseloads allow
- Supervision and oversight of caseloads, offering you support with any challenging decisions
- Free parking for all employees on sight or nearby
- A stable senior management team, ensuring you will work closely with someone who isn't likely to be replace in the near future
If the above is of interest please do contact Luke Gurrey on or .
As an agency we able to offer support and advice about currently roles in the market and the impact of IR35 to you as an interim social worker. I myself work extensively with Councils in the Yorkshire region, direct with Line Managers, opening up opportunities for candidates which may not hit the market through job boards etc. I take pride in providing any feedback received for applications made and of course all conversation had will be keep discreet and your CV will not be sent to any vacancy without express consent from yourself first.
