In Corporate Parenting we are looking for practice leaders who are skilled, dynamic and motivated with a passion for achieving excellence for looked after children. We are looking for experienced professionals who are aspirational for children and young people with the ability to drive change.
We are committed to supporting our staff to make a difference to the lives of children using resilience based approaches that support them, their carers & families and the communities they live in to thrive and achieve! We believe that with excellent practice leadership, support and supervision professional social work can thrive, creating environments where children are safe and where the quality of practice drives change that will help our looked after children bounce back from adversity.
Supported by an excellent workforce development programme, you will lead a team of up to 6 social workers driving excellence in practice whilst developing and refining your expertise and experience in supervision & management.
In addition to excellent development and career opportunities we have generous employee benefits:
- 30 days annual leave, plus public and bank holidays
- Work-life balance options may include flexi-time, job-share, homeworking, part-time
- Generous Local Government Pension Scheme
- We appreciate that not all employees want the same rewards and benefits package. Therefore, at Barnet we have a flexible benefits offer that can be tailored made to suit an individual’s preference such as trading in pension contributions for a higher salary. We will be happy to discuss and consider individual options during the recruitment process.
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 and children looked after, 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.
