What Ofsted said about our staff (January 2019) “Staff are enthusiastic about working for the Trust and are keen to demonstrate their commitment to improve”.

This service was introduced in April 2015, and has made huge waves in the way we deal with protecting children. Receiving referrals from our Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub, we undertake assessments including child protection enquiries and those at immediate risk, and we take on short-term intervention cases with children in need. If families require intervention lasting beyond three months, we then transfer the cases to the relevant teams.

As one of our Senior Practitioners you’ll find everything designed to help you do the job you’ve always been passionate about.  Because we’re focused on children’s safety and wellbeing and nothing else, you’ll be free to do the same.

You’ll play a lead role on our relationship-based, family-led practice model, running a complex caseload, and providing technical and professional expertise, mentoring and quality assurance to less experienced colleagues.

We’ll also look to you to front a joined up approach, encouraging robust partnerships with other service teams and outside agencies, plus the police, health, schools and voluntary organisations.

This is a key role in our organisation so naturally we’re looking for extensive experience of working with vulnerable children, families, statutory bodies and voluntary agencies.

You’ll need a recognised social work qualification and registration with the HCPC. You’ll back all this up with exceptional interpersonal skills – including communication, sound judgement, analytical thinking and team work.

We take pride in the joined-up nature of our work so you will be encouraged to develop robust partnerships with other service teams and outside agencies; to include the police, health, schools and voluntary organisations.
