Are you an experienced social work manager with Independent Conference and Reviewing Officer experience who is committed to achieving the best possible outcomes for children and young people? If so I have the perfect opportunity for you.

I am working with a local authority based in the West Midlands area and Ofsted recognised in their inspection last year that they are keeping children and young people safe. However, they have more to do, and have created a permanent Conference and Reviewing Team Manager post to help them on their improvement journey.

Therefore I am looking for a dynamic and experienced professional to manage a team of 10 including Independent Conference & Reviewing Officers, Foster Home Reviewing Officer and Local Authority Designated Officer. The Team Manager will not hold a caseload, but will provide occasional cover for meetings when necessary.

As the successful applicant you will be committed to service improvement and achieving the best possible outcomes for children and young people. You will have significant experience of Independent Conference & Reviewing Officer work, and the skills to support staff, manage performance and lead the team through a process of change and improvement in line with the recommendations from their recent Ofsted inspection.

Applicants must have the following:
-Be passionate about ensuring children and young people are safe, and creative in supporting them to achieve the best possible outcomes
-Extensive relevant experience in children and families work including managing team/staff within child protection and statutory interventions
-BA Honours in Social Work (DiPSW) or equivalent
-An in-depth working knowledge of legislation and best practice relating to conference and reviewing services, Foster Home Reviews and LADO
-A proven track record of service improvement, and managing change to deliver quality services

There are many benefits including car leasing, flexible working and a salary of up to GBP45,800. Please send a copy of your CV or call Karen on (Apply online only)
