Experienced Social Worker Child & Parent Assessment Team (Ref. 749)
Devon County Council
We’re looking for passionate, experienced social workers to join our Child & Parent Assessment Team and make a difference in the lives of the children, young people and families we support across Devon. You will be part of an experienced team of childcare social workers and specialist family practitioners who deliver parenting assessments either within child and parent fostering arrangements or with families in the community.
We are recruiting two people to join this team, for two posts, in this role.
If you’re looking for a new challenge and a nurturing and supportive environment to develop your career, we want to hear from you!
Social workers are at the heart of what we do.
In Devon, we’re committed to providing the support, training and development you need to continue to improve your professional practice as a social worker.
Our allocations enable practitioners to do meaningful work with families and a focus on the quality of practice and improved learning, supervision and support for our social workers. You’ll be encouraged to work smarter with access to technology and flexible working.
If you have experience in other social work sectors and wish to broaden your knowledge you can join our six-month transition programme. It provides an opportunity for qualified and Social Work England registered social workers to ‘transition’ into a children’s social work role. You’ll get structured support during the transition and regular progress reviews. Our successful programme has supported social workers with experience overseas to join our children’s teams as well as those with experience in areas such as mental health or adults’ teams or those who have taken a career break and want a supported return.
For experienced Social Workers there is the opportunity to become an Advanced or Consultant Social Worker to broaden your skills, knowledge and experience.
