Unique to Cambridgeshire, our model offers systemic trained family therapists whom provide a clinical lens to assessment, planning and evidence based interventions with children and their families.

Flexible working opportunities available, including 9 day fortnights.

Please see our benefits brochure attached for more details.

As a social worker in the children in care team, you’ll be called upon to make decisions that will have a big impact on the health, safety wellbeing and long-term outcome of children and young people. The needs of the child will be at the centre of everything you do, as you make choices based on achieving the best possible outcome in each individual child.

We currently have vacancies in the following locations: Wisbech, Ely and Huntingdon, which have great public and private transport links. We also offer free parking.

You must be a qualified social worker with current SWE registration and want to be part of a flagship for children’s service innovation. This is a great opportunity for you to work within a diverse and supportive team who will empower you to make important decisions and find creative solutions to challenging situations.
