This is a unique and exciting opportunity to join us as a senior manager of the only not-for-profit Co-operative in England and Wales. We require the successful candidate to manage, develop and promote the Foster Care provision and support services in Wales in line with regulatory requirements and the FCC’s values and ethos.
The successful candidate will be required to work from our Cardiff Bay office and travel frequently to areas in which our carers and social workers are located, primarily along the South Wales corridor, but also further afield. The role will include carrying out regular supervisions and performance reviews and contributing to the agency’s strategic development for Wales.
Outstanding Interpersonal skills, proven fostering experience, strong management skills and a flexible approach to working hours are essential. Applicants must have experience in good quality assessment and hold a Diploma or BA in Social Work, it would also be desirable for candidates to hold a management qualification (FCC encourage and support ongoing management training and would support the successful applicant in obtaining further management qualifications). We welcome applicants from IFA’s and the Local Authority.
The successful applicant would join a strong thriving region with an established carer support group and experienced social workers. We are a not for profit organisation, putting the needs of our children and carers first and look to appoint a manager who is as passionate about this as we are.
Do you share our ethos and values? If so, we’d love to hear from you.
