Social Worker - Child Protection

Location Tower Hamlets
Salary £33.00 - £35.80 per hour
Dan Bridge who is a permanent SW  is leaving our service on 29/04/2022 . The position will need to be filled by an agency worker to asssit with the  case loads within the team. This business case is seeking to employ a  Social worker  to fill a vacant post.    The ‘Family Support and Protection’ is a frontline social work safeguarding service responsible for working with children and families subject to long term statutory intervention such as having a child protection,  child in need plan, being subject of care proceedings, private proceedings or being privately fostered. This remains one of the most highly demanding and pressurised front line service with a high turnover of staff, and one that is resourced with permanent as well as agency staff.   If this vacancy is not covered it will result in unallocated CP and CIN cases and also will not allow the service to accept incoming cases from Assessment and Early Intervention Teams resulting in a bottleneck at the front door.
