Social Worker/Senior Social Worker Posted 7 months ago - Expired 6 months ago
This is an exciting time to join Barnsley Children and Family Social Care Service who are looking to recruit highly motivated, enthusiastic and committed professional Social Workers at all levels. We have high aspirations to achieve the very best outcomes for vulnerable children and young people residing in the borough. This means supporting Social Workers to develop excellent assessment and analytical skills, apply evidence based interventions and develop the confidence and skills to make timely decisions and plans for children that will achieve positive and sustainable outcomes for their future. We have secured funds to support a number of additional, permanent posts across the service that will ensure the quality of service offered to children due to the manageable caseloads of their Social Workers.
Developing our Social Workers is a key priority for us and you will be well supported, with access to supervision, appraisal, training and development opportunities, aimed at promoting outcomes for children and supporting career development.
Vacancies exist in the following services: Assessment and Joint Investigation Teams, Children and Young People’s teams, Disabled Children’s Team, Intensive Adolescent Support Team, Children in Care and Future Directions (leaving care).
