A Qualified Social Worker is required to join the Care Leavers team in Yate for South Gloucestershire Social Services. This contract is an initial 3 month contract and we do require you to be able to commit to the full 12 weeks. Pay rate for this role is up to £32 for those with 2 years post qualification and between £32 - £35 for those 4 years PQ.
This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic qualified social worker to join a busy Through Care Service. The posts are based within a busy vibrant office at Badminton Road. You would be joining an established team who support the looked after children and care leavers in the Through Care Service. The social work role is varied; you will be expected to manage a caseload of children in care fulfilling the statutory requirements and care planning to help them achieve their goals and potential. Some of the work can be reactive and fast paced; you will need the skills to work, on occasion, in pressurised situations. You will need the ability to work on your own, be creative, respond to changing demands and be able to challenge. You will need to have excellent communication skills and the ability to form and maintain relationships with children and their families. Children are placed all over the country so you will need the ability to travel to carry out your tasks. The role demands a high standard of written work, organisational skills and IT capabilities. A good understanding of the needs of the children and families we work with is crucial.
Requirements for this role include:
- Social Work qualification
- Social Work England registration
- Experience in childrens services / thoughcare
- Enhanced DBS on the update service
