Various Social Worker and Management Posts
Children’s Services at Lewisham
Lewisham Children’s Social Care has undergone some major changes over the last year. We know what good social work looks like and we’ve created an improvement plan to get where we want to be. It’s all about creating the right conditions and culture for good practice to thrive. We’ve already made a good start, but we can move faster with your help.
That’s why we’re looking for talented social workers to join us in all kinds roles at a number of different levels: Social Workers,Team Managers, Group Managers and Advanced Practitioners in everything from Domestic Abuse to Child Protection. With your energy and drive, you’ll accelerate our progress and put us on course to achieve the high standards we’ve set our ourselves.
Our vision is…
- Families are respected and supported to stay together, whenever there is safety.
- Families will tell us they understand why we are involved.
- Children will tell us their social worker has made a difference to their lives.
- Children who are in our care know we care and we won’t give up on them.
- Young people who have been in our care feel confident about their future.
Describing good practice is easy. Making it happen is something else. It takes inspiring leadership, resources and a clear, realistic plan. With our whole system approach, we have made significant progress, which Ofsted recognised when they inspected us in June 2019. But we know there’s more to do. And that’s where you come in.
Why join us?
Because our improvement plan doesn’t just benefit local people – it’s good news for you too. We’ve set up a committed management team, set caseloads at between 15-20 children and developed a comprehensive training offer and varied career progression options. Meanwhile, our case recording system is being stripped back so you can spend more time with families and less on paperwork. We want our social workers to thrive, just like Lewisham’s children.
