Supervising Social Worker - North East

Aurora Resourcing are currently looking for a Supervising Social Worker to join a well-established fostering service based in the North East.

Someone who is currently working in the independent sector and therefore understands the requirements of the role and the levels of support that we provide to the families would be preferred, but fostering social workers across the spectrum will be considered.

A therapeutic parenting model is in place so a thorough working knowledge of attachment theory would be of benefit, but training would be provided if not.

The ideal candidate for this role would be someone who can fit in with the culture of this organisation, someone who shares the same drive, determination, enthusiasm and commitment and want to make a lasting impact on the lives of children.

The role

  • To contribute to the effective day to day practice of the Fostering Service.
  • Recruit, assess, train and support foster carers, working in partnership with other team members in order to provide a high quality and safe service for our foster families and the children/young people they look after.
  • Promote great outcomes for all children and young people looked after
  • Actively engage in and uphold the values of the agency.

You will have

  • Qualified Social Worker with experience in a Fostering Team
  • Be up to date on childcare legislation, regulations and guidance set out for fostering services
  • Excellent communication skills
  • The ability to self-motivate and work using your own initiative
