Provide Operational Management Whilst Working Flexibly

As a result of a DTM being promoted to a Manager, a Local Authority which I work with is now looking for a Deputy Team Manager to provide operational management to one its Older Persons & Physical Disabilities teams. The Authority is one of the most diverse in London, which will really allow you to be creative in your approach to providing Social Care to service users.

This is a largely stable service where the majority of managers are employed on a permanent basis and the Authority are really keen to ensure that this remains the case to make sure Social Workers are receiving stability and continuous support. As a DTM you will be taking the reigns of a relatively small team which consists of no more than 4 Social Workers, this way you will really have the opportunity to get to know members of the team and be able to provide effective and manageable supervision. The size of the team also ensures that you are not over burdened with an unmanageable amount of supervision and other tasks.

The Local Authority has also received a large amount of funding and have recently moved into new state of the art offices where you will be based with other Social Work services; offering you the opportunity to really build professional and social relationships. As well as a new office the services have embraced technology with staff being issued tablets and smart phones to enable them to work remotely and flexibly.

To be considered for this post you should have experience of managing Social Workers within Adult services.
