The Voice of the Child is an important part of our work and the successful applicant will be asked to work in creative ways to represent the views of children and young people in placement.

 

Applications will be considered from experienced Social Workers, registered with the HCPC.

 

There is greater expectancy on flexible working as evening visits are often required and you will be expected to take part in recruitment events which may take place on a weekend.
