You must have experience of working with multi-agency teams, good organisational skills and the ability to manage a busy and varied caseload. You should also have a strong knowledge of current child protection legislation, policies and procedures.

The role offers the chance to work with a very experienced and supportive team in a friendly and open environment. You will have the opportunity to contribute to the development and improvement of services, as well as having access to excellent training and professional development opportunities.

They need a Senior Social Worker that is ready to help vulnerable children and their families really succeed and affect change.

Why use Sheldon Phillips to find your next role? It's simple really - we aren't pushy or too needy.....we know that what you want is to be listened to! You want an agency that will proactively look for what you want to do, rather than us focussing on the roles that will benefit us financially.

That's why we have been so successful, because this is YOUR job search, not ours.
