Specific requirements for the post / Key skills and qualifications
This is a role for a skilled and experienced social worker who has a minimum of three years post qualifying experience with evidence of ongoing learning and development.

We are seeking a practitioner with well developed practice skills who is able to support a range of children and families alongside less experienced workers on the team including students and ASYE’s. Previous experience around adoption is desirable.
