I have an interesting role for senior/advanced practitioners/SW/assistant team manager/ consultants with experience in LAC/ Leaving care. This new role is working in a North London Borough, as part of a 'pod' based multi disciplinary team in which the LAC/CIC team has been merged with the Leaving Care team. The role is for a Social Worker to provide supervision and practical support to a pod of 5 Social Workers with cases where the Local Authority is progressing plans for permanence for that child outside of their birth family/carers. You will provide systemic supervision and lead regular Practice Support Groups (weekly), using systemic methods, to support cases. The team will be supported by a Primary Care Mental Health Practitioner attached to the team for complex cases where mental health is a feature. You will also provide guidance around Life Story work and the production of a Later Life letter. Training will be provided. The Local Authority has a lot going for it, including a stable management team who have consistently progressed their redesign of the Local Authority's Children's Services with success and now have well embedded Signs of Safety procedures, a lot of permanent staff and no cuts to the budget in three years. The salary is £41,025 to £43,815, dependent on your experience. The Local Authority also offer an annual retention payment of £3000, split over two payments per year, so your salary will be from £44,025 to £46,815 yearly. They also offer a relocation payment of up to £7000 for people living over 15 miles away from the borough. This is a different role and the successful candidate will be able to make a really positive impact on the lives of young people going through our care system, while working in a new and innovative way. Please send me your CV and phone number ASAP if you are interested or pass this on to someone else who might be- this role closes on the 6th of October so we need to move quickly for you to apply for this role.
