LAC Social Worker - Good Ofsted & Low Caseloads - £38k
Work with a Low & Balanced Caseload
A London based Local Authority is seeking an experienced Social Worker to join their LAC service
- Low Caseloads of around 11
- Balanced Caseloads
- Local Authority achieved a Good Ofsted
- Majority of children are placed in the London region
- Will be provided the equipment to work flexibly and remotely
- Modular training available as well as a clear and defined progression pathway
The LAC teams are structured as to ensure Social Workers have excellent support in place via Senior Practitioner or the Team Manager. Currently caseloads sit at 11 which is low for the region and caseloads are balanced with some children having been settled and some who are in the process.
Current themes in the Local Authority include CSE, Gangs and missing children so this would be an ideal opportunity for those candidates who are looking to specialise in one of these areas. Training will be provided via modular training which can be used and accumulated to achieve a MSc or a higher education qualification. Furthermore there is a clear and defined career pathway for those candidates who are career focused and looking to progress.
The Local Authority has excellent transport links being with a number of major lines running through and easily accessible and therefore candidates do not need to have a vehicle for this post.
To be considered for this post candidates will need to have experience of working with Children Looked After. Those candidates who also have Court Work experience are highly sought after.
