Supervising Social Worker
£28,485 – £32,486 per annum
+ 45p a mile for travel, 32 days holiday
and an excellent pension scheme
We are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic, flexible and personable Social Worker.
The successful candidate will be responsible for recruiting, assessing and supporting Foster Carers to maintain a quality fostering service for looked after children in the South Wales area. The role will involve regular travel to the homes of foster carers (which may involve travelling distances) and being available to answer emergency calls outside of office hours.
The FCC do not believe in providing our Social Workers with heavy caseloads. Instead we aim to provide our Social Workers with ample capacity to provide a thorough, personal and meaningful service to all of our foster families.
Applicants must have experience in the completion of good quality, evidence based assessments and hold a Diploma or BA in Social Work. Prior fostering experience is desirable but not essential. We have a particular interest in applicants who are Welsh speakers.
The successful applicant will join a supportive team with an established carer group and experienced social workers. We are a non-profit organisation, putting the needs of our children and carers first and look to appoint a Social Worker who is as passionate about this as we are.
Closing Date: 9th October 2018
For an informal discussion about the role, please contact Tracey Arnold or Kim Perkins on 029 20464348.
The FCC is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and operate a Safe Recruitment policy; applicants must be willing to undergo Safeguarding screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and Disclosure and Barring Service clearance at an enhanced level. CVs will not be accepted, all applicants must complete an application form.
