Supervising Social Worker - Small IFA, Small Caseload



My client, a small Independent Fostering Agency is searching for a new Supervising Social worker to join their offices in the Kent region and help continue delivering exceptional service to the children in care in the local area.

Comprised of a small team of 4 permanent members, you'll help screen, assess, recruit and train future foster carers. Your caseload will consist of some existing carers, but you will display the ability to work autonomously in recruiting new foster carers. With the caseload being smaller than a Local Authority, you'll be able to quickly see results from the hard work and effort you put in to training the Potential Foster Carers (PFC) and the Children within Care.

The Role:

* Supervising Social Worker in a small IFA
* Will have the chance to grow in the role as the company expands
* Non-for-profit company
* Committed to delivering quality training and results

Requirements:

* 2 years within an IFA or Fostering Team at a Local Authority
* Form F training (desired, but not essential)
* Ability to work autonomously
* Hold experience in dealing with complex or challenging cases
* An ability to empathise to not only the Children in Care, but also the PFC's
* The desire to work to outcomes that greatly benefit the Children in Care & the PFC's
* Confident and ambitious in helping shape the company/policy decisions
