SW Locums are recruiting for a committed and self-motivated, Qualified Social Worker to provide support and advice to Disabled Children and Young People for Peterborough City Council.

We are looking for a Senior Practitioner for Transitions 14-25 team.

As a 0 to 25 Disability service our client group is disabled children and their families and those young people requiring support to transition into adult services and early adulthood.

The service operates as one service of two teams; a 0 to 18 team and a transitions team for 14 to 25. There is cross over and so some social workers have mixed case work of both children and young adults.

Experienced social workers with an interest in or experience of working with disabled children and young people are encouraged to apply.

The Team’s priorities are to ensure that these Children and Young People’s needs are assessed and supported in line with the respective legislation and statutory requirements; supporting positive and inspirational outcomes for our children and young.

  • You will also have enthusiasm and creativity in engaging with disabled children and young people.
  • You will have experience in working within Children’s legislation and/or adults legislation.
  • You will require an ability to work on own initiative as well as part of a team, to meet deadlines and work effectively under pressure. To be punctual, reliable and work with integrity.
  • There will be an occasional need to work some unsocial hours and the ability to undertake visits out of county is essential. As such applicants will require a full driving licence with use of own car.
  • You may be required to supervise one alternatively qualified practitioner
