We are looking to recruit 2 Supervising Social Workers for our new Specialist Fostering Scheme that is due to be launched imminently.

Specialist Foster Carers’ Scheme is for carers who provide long-term family based placements to children aged between 12-18 years old who have more complex needs. The young people placed with these carers would normally require a higher than usual level of support as they may be difficult to place due to either vulnerable or have complex behaviours.
As a Supervising Social Worker for the Specialist Foster Carers you will be delivering and providing outlined services to the young people and their carers in order to ensure that they are safeguarded and are protected from harm. This group of foster carers would require higher levels of supervision than other foster carers. The role is going to require a multi-agency approach which will include residential homes, therapeutic and education sectors.
You will be managing cases varying in complexity, assess levels of risk and foster carers’ capacity to continue to offer safer care for the young person. You will be constantly monitoring the placement and review the situations in order to promote good outcomes for the child in care.

The successful candidate will join an established Fostering Service whereby majority of staff members are permanent.

For an informal discussion please contact Fostering Service Manager; Christine Johnson on 01604 361335 or 07920 410872 or Dawn May; Team Manager on 07872421680.
