Social Work Team Manager - 0-15 Care Service

Location Southwark
Salary £40 - £42.20 per hour
The 0-15 Care Service in Southwark are looking for a TM with solid LAC experience who could step straight into the role within the next 2 weeks and cover until we recruit permanently. The post would be for a minimum of 3 months.
They would be managing a team of 6/7 social workers working with looked after children up to the age of 16. The team are all permanent workers. Caseloads are around 12, we tend to take cases after the orders have been made so there is very limited court work which is generally only revocations of care orders or application for contact orders from parents. The main focus is on achieving permanence for young people, ensuring there is no drift and delay, managing risk and providing supervision. We work within a systemic model so as well as 1:1 supervision there is also group supervision which takes place once per fortnight and is supported by a clinical practitioner.
