Waltham Forest is looking for people with a passion in social care to join us in a wide range of positions across our Children & Young People Services. Social workers who will do whatever it takes to ensure children’s lives are championed. Social workers with the experience and know-how to spot any child in need and to identify their potential. Champions, we hope, just like you!
Dependent upon your experience and skills, you could be part of anyone of a number of busy Social Work Teams that we have vacancies in. You will manage a realistic caseload to support some of our most vulnerable children who may have complex problems, but for a social worker like you, this will be your driving force to turn their lives around and achieve good outcomes.
This is an excellent opportunity to work in a challenging and rewarding area. We offer a friendly and supportive environment where supervision and professional development are a high priority. You will be encouraged to develop your supervisory skills and forge close operational links with our partner agencies.
