SAFEGUARDING SOCIAL WORKERS all areas: North West, North East and South
It’s an exciting time to join Safeguarding services in WCF.
As a Social Worker with us, you’ll look at each case and assess, plan, implement and evaluate action or treatment. Your main focus will be on helping children and their families to cope with social, emotional and environmental problems so they can live their lives as fully as possible in the community.
You’ll need relevant qualifications and a good understanding of the systems and processes that enable organisations like ours to protect children and look after the best interests of their families. But what will set you apart is your commitment to doing all you can to build relationships and quickly get to grips with any issues. We’re looking for people with an innate confidence but also the ability to listen, weigh up the facts and come up with the best possible solution. Ultimately, you’ll do all you can to help children lead happy lives with their own families.
Our safeguarding service is well supported with specialist family support teams offering bespoke interventions with families, including intensive support to maintain children with their families where it is safe to do so.
We are looking for Social Workers who value relationship-based practice and who are committed to achieving positive outcomes for the children and families they work with. Within the role you will have the opportunity to work with children and families who are subject of Child in Need or Child Protection Plans and to complete work within the legal area, when necessary, to keep children safe.
There is a supportive and accessible management structure in in place and you will receive regular, reflective supervision to support your excellent social work practice.
