MASH – £29.93ph – Birmingham
We are the Master Vendor for Birmingham City Council’s children services and we are currently recruiting for a Senior Social Worker role within their Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub. This will be based in their Lancaster Circus location.

As a senior social worker (on an initial 3 month contract), you will earn an hourly rate of £29.93, which is the capped rate within all local authorities in the West Midlands.

The role:
MASH is a fully integrated and co-located multi-agency team. The purpose of the team is to receive all contacts and notifications where a service from children’s social care or a co-ordinated multi-agency response may be needed and - through good referral taking and multi-agency information sharing - to make decisions of which of these need to be assessment by family support or ASTI, and which of those require a co-ordinated multi-agency response.

MASH receives all contacts and notifications where there are concerns about a child’s development or need for protection from abuse or neglect.

- Triages and gathers information on all contacts received from CIASS.
- Offers consultation and advice to professionals regarding Child Protection concerns.
- Signposts and redirects work below the threshold to appropriate universal and targeted services.
- Where contacts are deemed to be related to complex/significant needs, children in need and child protection, relevant information can be shared between agencies that are represented in the MASH to decide an appropriate course of action. Where this relates to children in need, parents should be contacted and asked if they consent.
- Where the information sharing identifies that children may be at immediate risk of significant harm, these cases are referred to the ASTI Teams without delay for a strategy discussion.

You will need:

- At least 3 years of experience in a qualified social work role.
- To have experience working within a MASH team.

You need to have a relevant social work qualification. E.g. CQSW, CSS, DipSW, HCPC and eligibility to work in the UK.
