A Growing North London Fostering Agency is looking for a highly motivated Registered Fostering Manager to join them on a permanent basis.

  • To ensure all required duties are executed as directed by the Fostering Regulations 2011 and the National Minimum Standards 2011
  • To ensure records are maintained as required by OFSTED
  • To ensure that foster carers are supported through training, supervision and support group
  • To liaise with relevant agencies and professionals in ensuring the high standard of service delivery

To be considered you must:

  • Have previously supervised staff at a Team Manager level upwards within a Local Authority, Fostering Agency or Residential Service
  • Have flexibility around working hours and duties
  • Hold a full UK driving licence and have access to your own car
  • Demonstrate good level of spoken and written English
