Children's family support / Child Protection Social Worker - Milton Keynes - £43K + £4k bonus
I am currently recruiting for Social Workers and Senior Social Workers for a safeguarding team in Milton Keynes. The successful Social Worker must have the ability to manage complex work within Care proceedings and Child Protection processes. You must also have extensive experience of managing PLO and Court work. Pick the cases up from referral team and see through to 1st hearing.
Retention within the service is exceptional, with the percentage of permanent workers within the teams the highest among many of the neighbouring authorities; this has been attributed to the closely monitored caseloads. Specifically the caseload will consist of 8/9 families and will never rise above 20 children. This enables workers to do their very best work, and focus on quality rather than volume – hence reducing stress on long term members of the team.
The service also prides itself on support from all aspects of the service when working as a qualified social worker. Such infrastructure includes: the FAST (Family Assessment & Support team) who act as an intensive support service providing family support plans, initial assessments and more, upon initial referral from MASH; Training is funded for post qualified workers, eg. Practice Educators and Special Assessment Training; finally the management team is incredibly stable, with all of senior management holding permanent posts.
Benefits of authority:
- Up to £8K relocation package
- Pension contributions of up to 20%
- Minimum of 27 days paid annual leave, plus bank holidays
- Mapped career progression, and extensive funding for training
- Discounts on retail, travel and more!
- Agile and remote working, including the provision of work iPads and more
As a Child Protection Social Worker, you will be:
- HCPC registered
- Eligible to work in the UK
- Car Driver Essential
If this role isn’t right for you, we also offer £500 referral bonus to anyone recommended over whom we successfully place.
