Adoption Panel Chair

One Adoption South Yorkshire is seeking to appoint a new Adoption Panel Chair on a 3 year contract.

You will be one of two Panel Chairs covering 4 Panel meetings per month across South Yorkshire.

We have recently re-configured the previous four local panels into the OASY West Panel and the OASY East.

The current vacancy is for the East Panel which will be mostly Doncaster and Rotherham but could include the occasional Panel in Sheffield or Barnsley. The OASY Chairs are supported by dedicated Agency Advisers, one for East and one for West and experienced business support teams across the RAA.

We are seeking someone with a good understanding of Adoption and family placements in general and the ability to chair complex meetings ensuring that everyone is able to participate fully and the meeting reaches a clear decision. The Adoption Panel Chair must be an experienced social worker with at least 3 years post-qualification experience.

Chairs are paid £500 per panel for up to 26 panels per year and £50 per hour for any additional agreed work beyond the 26 panels.
