About the role

Are you an experienced social work professional looking for the next step in your career? Come and join us in the Adolescent Team as our Team Manager!

We have recently joined the Youth Support Service which means we are closely aligned with the Youth Justice Service (YJS) and SAFE! team, who work with young people involved in criminal exploitation. As a result of these increasingly close links, as a Senior Practitioner you will be working alongside police officers, health workers, psychologists, education workers, substance misuse workers, as well as Social Workers (of course!) and many others. 

We work in a trauma informed way, allowing our practitioners to have reflective practice sessions to support them and allow time to consider approaches. Your role will be integral in this. We have extensive support from senior management to ensure that we are able to deliver effective interventions that make a difference for young people and their families, in all aspects of their lives.

With our recent changes, now is a great time to join us and be part of these exciting developments.

Our Team Managers think creatively in delivering support to children and young people and understanding thresholds. The role includes work allocation, performance monitoring, management oversight, dealing with staffing issues and supporting the training and development of the team.

We are dedicated to providing Social Workers and Senior Practitioners with a professional, safe and supportive environment to work in, and our Team Managers are vital in this.

This is a rolling campaign and we check applications daily, don’t wait to apply!
