We are delighted to announce that an opportunity has arisen to join our established mainstream Fostering Team. We are currently looking for a passionate social worker who would like the opportunity to support our local Foster carers and Children in Our Care to support placement stability and achieve permanence.
Our Fostering Team as a whole is well established with a range of professionals who bring a variety of differing skills, with access to the Adolescent Support Unit. The Therapeutic support service called REVIVE sits alongside the Fostering Team providing direct support and consultation with a designated fostering support officer, available to provide additional therapeutic support to Foster Carers and children. We are proud of the team spirit engendered right across our service and we know that having supportive colleagues around you is what makes the difference – so we really want to encourage you to join us and become an essential part of our service.
Within this role you will be provided with the opportunity to work closely with other social worker teams, building close links for inter-professional working and gaining experience and skills from both.
Along with participating in recruitment activities and assessment of prospective carers you will participate in the supervision and support of approved foster carers, undertaking elements of foster carer training and supporting the continuation of team development.
