Are you an enthusiastic, passionate and ambitious qualified Social Worker? Join us at Lincolnshire County Council in our vision of "Putting Children First". You will have the support, time and resources you need to develop your Social Work career. Our Children's Services is rated by Ofsted as Outstanding. This is an incredible achievement and something all of us are extremely proud of as it reflects the quality of social work practice we deliver to the children, young people and families we support across the County. We are currently looking for qualified Social Workers (Level 1) to join our Family Assessment and Support Teams in the city of Lincoln, and the market towns of Gainsborough and Grantham. The children and families that we work with face a range of challenges, and if you join one of our FAST teams, your caseload will be extremely varied. Our Social Workers work with partners in the authority, other agencies and schools to help improve the outcomes of children's lives. Our practice model is Signs of Safety and this is underpinned by a commitment to restorative practice, meaning that you will be practicing in a way where the strengths of the family and their network are honoured, where families are supported to develop their own solutions and where plans are child centred with the voice of the child being at the heart. As a Level 1 Social Worker in our team you'll use your skills, knowledge and experience to manage a range of cases from assessment to ongoing interventions, leading on these from start to finish meaning children and families have consistency of Social Workers. You'll work directly with children, young people and their families and other stakeholders to build a brighter future for the children and families who need our help. We understand that being a Social Worker can be a challenging, often emotional but also a very rewarding career. This is why you will be surrounded by a supportive, caring and compassionate team. You'll co-work more complex caseloads alongside more experienced Social Workers helping you make the right decisions when it matters most. You will receive monthly formal professional and case supervision; take part in monthly group learning and also participate in monthly team meetings. You will also have the opportunity to complete a fully funded PQ module. Your continued professional development will be as important to us as it is to you, and your learning and development will remain in focus throughout the year, not just during your annual appraisal. Our offer of complimentary access to the Research in Practice and Community Care online platforms further demonstrates this. Take your next step with us today and use your skills where they matter most. This job was originally posted as
