Social Worker – Assessment
We are looking for experienced social workers to work in our assessment team.
The team provides social work services to children and their families to safeguard and promote their welfare. Your role will be to undertake high quality and timely single assessments and to liaise with partners within and without the council as necessary to ensure that services are provided efficiently and effectively. You’ll manage complex cases, planning intervention and support in a timely manner and, at all times, making sure that the children’s voices are heard and recorded consistently.
We’ll also expect you to contribute to the team – helping us develop and improve standards and quality, helping us to achieve the best possible outcomes for our children and their families.
In return, we will give you the time and support you need to make a difference. Though we’re not complacent, we believe that our training, development and support is among the best in London – and we have plenty more in store for 2017. We are driving down caseloads and investing heavily in better IT and mobile working technology to help staff spend more quality time doing what matters.
