Our Service
Children’s Services at Northamptonshire are in an exciting period of significant transformation as we move into a Children’s Trust which will deliver services for two new unitary authorities across the county.
Children’s support and safeguarding teams complete work with children who are subject to child protection plans, child-in-need plans and Public Law Outline/initial care proceedings. They also support multi-agency practice in completing pre-birth and parenting assessments and work with adolescents focusing on contextualised safeguarding.
Utilising a relationship-based approach, where the young person is at the heart of everything we do, the service will undertake assessments, both statutory and non-statutory, and will focus on intensive, direct work to meet complex needs and manage associated risks. Some packages of support will be led by social workers, others by lead professionals from across the service, including from CFN’s partners. The service wants good outcomes for young people and for them to be safe; adequately housed and supported (with their families wherever possible); physically and emotionally healthy and achieving good outcomes through education, training or employment.

The Role
We are seeking a Team Manager, with current Social Work England registration, and previous leadership experience in a similar role. You will provide leadership to your team, who will consist of a Consultant Social Worker, 5 to 6 Social Workers, a family support worker and a business support administrator.

The right candidate will have responsibility for the team plan to meet objectives and ensure performance targets are achieved.

The Person
The right candidate will be a qualified Social Worker, with current Social Work England registration, and ideally with a Level 5 NVQ Management qualification, or equivalent relevant experience. You will have the ability to manage a team and ensure development and performance issues are addressed though support and coaching. You will have previous budgetary control experience, ICT skills and the ability to represent the service at a more senior level if required.

• Monthly high quality supervision
• 27 days annual leave plus bank holidays (with service rises to 32 days plus bank holidays)
