We require an Experienced Social Worker as soon as possible for three months in the P&T South team based at Follaton House, Plymouth Road, Totnes, with free car parking onsite.

Additional tasks may include risk meetings, safety plans and transitions to new placements or semi independent living. Multi agency working supporting placements, mental health and education to ensure that the young person achieves their potential and their best health. Management of a caseload of 16-20 cases with most of our young people living locally however, there is some travelling out of county. Up to £150 per week accommodation allowance to those working in Children and Families, P&T, subject to the following criteria: o This is paid on a reimbursement basis – VAT receipts must be provided to evidence expenditure. o The candidate must be currently based at least 50 miles, one-way, from the proposed work base. Devon is a mostly rural county, and as our localities cover a large area and accordingly our candidates can be expected to travel some distance between visits. In some areas, candidates will not be able to rely on walking, cycling or public transport to make visits. We therefore require candidates to have access to their own suitable transport, subject to reasonable adjustments that may need to be made in line with the Equality Act 2010.
