My client which is based in London is seeking an experienced Pod Leader / Assistant Team Manager to provide Leadership to a team of 5 members of staff within a LAC and Leaving Care service. The team work with children and young people who are considered to be Looked After and who are also approaching end of care, as such the age of service users range between 0-25.
The team consist of 1 Senior Practitioner, 2 Social Workers, a Leaving Care Coach and a Family Finder all of who will be reporting into the Pod Leader. This is an excellent opportunity to work within a successfully restructured service which has adopted the Hackney Model in order to provide the best outcomes for Children in Care.
This post is a management role which will give you responsibility of the day to day operations of the team. You will be further supported by your Team Manager who is a long standing member of the service and is employed on a permanent basis
As the Local Authority aims to reduce its locum workforce there has been a drive towards permanent recruitment to provide a greater degree of stability to the service.
To be considered for this post you should have managed Social Workers from a LAC or Leaving Care background. You should also have experience of Court Work.
