The reunification and placement stability service (RAPSS) are looking to recruit a Family Worker, based in the Fenland area. The post will involve working alongside our fostering service to provide intervention support to our foster carers in creative and innovative ways to support them and the young people in their care. The role will involve targeting support to achieve placement stability and utilise consistent and enduring relationships to maintain and sustain positive change, with some of our most vulnerable and traumatised young people.

You will be motivated with excellent communication and written skills, committed to working as part of a team as well as good at liaising and forming good relationships with partner agencies. You will be able to work flexibly to meet the needs of the service and willing to work occasional planned work on evenings and weekends. You will be required to have 2 A Levels or equivalent English and Maths GSCE at grade A-C. A qualification in a Social Care related subject and experience of working with children and families is essential.
