It's all about our children – supporting you to make a difference.
In Barnet, putting children, young people and families first is at the heart of our Family Friendly vision. We are committed to supporting our staff to make a difference to the lives of children using resilience based approaches that support them, their families and the communities they live in to thrive and achieve; it’s all about bouncebackability!
We do this by ensuring our social workers have manageable caseloads and are supported by accessible managers who are interested in your professional development and career progression.
Social work can be challenging and rewarding, we understand how complex this work can be and offer our staff ‘hands on’ support from co-located Clinical Practitioners and Practice Development Workers. We also have an excellent professional development programme delivered through :
- Barnet Practice Academy
- North London Teaching Partnership
- Institute of Family Therapy
We are looking for skilled, dynamic and motivated professionals who are aspirational for children and young people with the ability to drive change in the families and professional systems they work within. If you can thrive in a fast paced environment and want to be part of our high energy team – Barnet could be for you.
Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate engagement with children and families in their assessments and plans in innovative ways, and have a passion for delivery of high quality services and interventions to vulnerable children and families in partnership with a wide range of agencies and organisations. You will possess in-depth knowledge and understanding of the legislative framework and polices in relation to safeguarding children, be able to provide evidence of your excellent written and oral communication skills, demonstrate your impact on families in achieving positive outcomes for children and influence the professional networks that you work with.
