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 children to bounce back from adversity.

Under the guidance of an experienced Team Manager and working alongside integrated Clinical Practitioners, Practice Development Workers and a range of co-located multi-agency partners you will be supported to develop and refine your knowledge, skills and expertise enabling you to provide excellent services to children, young people and their families and to progress your career.

So, if you want to be challenged and engaged in helping children and families bounce back from adversity, consider yourself to be professionally curious and a dynamic practitioner who can thrive in a fast paced and high energy service, then Barnet is for you. It is an exciting place to work, where at the heart of our Family Friendly vision is helping families, children and young people to become resilient so they can thrive and achieve.
