Our size means it is possible to shape your entire social work career in the Trust.  You will have the opportunity to experience every aspect of social work; thus allowing you to progress in your social work practice; as well as the opportunity to forge out a managerial career.

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 must hold a recognised social work qualification and registration with the Health Care Profession Council.

Your qualification will be complemented by your external personal skills – including communication, sound judgement, analytical thinking and teamwork.

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”.

If you would like to be part of our enthusiastic team and are committed to continuous improvement click on apply below. 

Interviews will take place on Friday 14th February 2020
