SW Locums are looking for accomplished and reliable social workers to work in the Child Protection team in Tiverton, East Devon.
This will require someone local or who is willing to travel and relocate. All the offices remain open for access and use but we have limited numbers on who can be there. The message is still work from home where possible, however some feel it is better for emotional wellbeing and personal development to be in. Some will just use as a touch down between visits etc.
In 2019 and 2020, Devon ranked best for average caseloads against its neighbouring authorities with 13.5* as the average (DfE Children’s Social Work Workforce Census). More experienced Social Workers will have a higher number with it typically around 18 children in our Children and Families and Permanence and Transition teams with recruitment activity taking place to reduce this back to 16. Social Workers in Devon benefit from having Family Practitioners and Personal Advisors in their teams to co-work complex children’s plans and work with young people in care aged 16+.
Pay up to £45 per hour.
The post requires candidates who hold a current Enhanced DBS and Social Work England Registration.
This is a great role in a great location with a great team.
Candidates will be working with children during care proceedings, from either Formal Pre proceedings or ICO.
To secure permanence for children in a timely way.
At SW Locums you will benefit from working for an agency established for over 11 years and with over 50 years combined social work experience.
