This is an excellent opportunity for an established manager or an ATM keen to take the step up in their career. You will be coming into a team which is well established and able to operate independently and to a high level. The teams are quite small so that managers are able to provide more dedicated support to their staff, this also means that as a manager you wont be spread too thin amongst supervision and operation duties.
This team is 1 of 4 in the authority and you will receive wider support from the senior management team who are located on the floor and easily approachable. Furthermore you will be encouraged to use your creativity and bring your own ideas to the table to further help develop practice and try innovative approached to your work.
To be considered for this post you should have managed Fostering Social Workers either in the capacity of a Team Manager, Assistant Team Manager or Advanced Practitioner.
