Childrens social work recruitment responsibility and strategy

Please provide a Children’s Services structure chart indicating names of post holders ideally down to and including Service Managers. Please include your Principal Officer.

We have interpreted this to mean the Children’s Social Work and Child Protection service structure chart. 

Who within both Children’s Services and Human Resources takes lead responsibility for child protection social workers?

Lead responsibility from a practice perspective is, the Deputy Chief Officer for Childrens Services, and Head of Service for Childrens Social Care and Child Protection , Darryl Freeman. HR provide recruitment and other HR support and advice only, the lead officer for this is David Rose.

Please provide a copy of any strategy document you have that addresses recruitment and retention of such social workers.

We do not hold this information.
