Children's Services -Social Worker Level

Location Dudley, Dudley, England
Salary £27.93 - £30.33 per hour
Are you a qualified Children’s Social Worker, experienced in children & families frontline work and either registered or eligible to quickly register with Social Work England. Are you looking to get back to work on a part time basis or seeking some additional work as a second job. Maybe you are at home with children or retired from social work. Dudley are recruiting to flexible social work posts and your role would be to help us with progressing cases ready for closure, step down or transfer. Whilst some of your role will involve speaking to families and professionals over the phone, there will be no face to face visits to families. This role would therefore be suited to anyone with experience, who can work from home and who can commit to 2 days or more per week. Some of your work will therefore fit nicely around other commitments, as any system recording can be done outside of core hours
