The Foster Care Co-operative: 2 x Part Time Senior Supervising Social Workers (Fostering) – Yorkshire & North West
We are seeking to recruit two experienced and highly motivated Supervising Social Workers to work 22.5 hours per week, working primarily from home.
The role involves recruiting, assessing, supervising and supporting Foster Carers to support us in maintaining our quality, child-centred, fostering service. In addition, the successful candidate will be involved in the recruitment of foster carers, be required to travel to the homes of our foster carers as required (which will sometimes involve travelling distances), lead occasional projects, occasionally deliver training and support groups, and take part in an ‘out of hours’ duty system (3 times a year).
Applicants need to be able to take a flexible approach to working, have proven fostering experience (demonstrating significant experience of working within Children’s Services) and be able to demonstrate outstanding people skills. Applicants must hold a Diploma or BA in Social Work (or equivalent Social Work qualification) and are required to be registered with Social Work England.
To allow our Social Workers to provide a thorough, personal and meaningful service to our fostering families, FCC believe that caseloads need to be manageable. We are a not for profit organisation, who are morally driven in all that we do. We put the needs of our children and carers first and look to appoint Social Workers who are as passionate about this as we are.
Application Closing Date: Monday 23rd March, 2020
Interviews will held on: 26th March/15th-16th April
