Social Worker – Locality Teams

Stockport, Greater Manchester, UK Temporary, Full Time £27.53 - £27.53 per hour

Ashberry Recruitment are currently recruiting for a number of agency Children Services Social Workers to join our client, Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council.

We have a requirement for a number of Agency Social Workers to join their Locality Teams with immediate effect on rolling/on-going temporary contracts.

Stockport is Ofsted rated Good (2017) and provides excellent support to their Social Workers. This includes mobile working equipment, regular supervision and training opportunities such as learning circles. Social Workers work within a framework of Restorative Practice and our model seeks to minimise transitions for families, instead focusing on building relationships. This means the work is varied and you have the opportunity to work towards creating real change with our children and families. Over the next 12 months the service will undertake an exciting transformation to new ways of working more closely with schools and communities across Stockport.

Use of a car will be essential. Our Social Workers are currently able to work from home to minimise risks due to Covid19, but there will be a need to undertake home visits, where PPE will be provided as necessary.

This is a full time requirement [37hrs], on a on-going contract, with the potential to join the end client on a permanent basis if that is desirable.

Ashberry Recruitment would ask that applicants meet the following:

  • DIPSW or equivalent qualification in Social Work and will be registered with Social Work England as a qualified Social Worker.
  • Have a full driving licence and car available for work along with business insurance. 
  • Have an enhanced and in date DBS certificate 
  • Have excellent verbal and written communication skills and be able to make good decisions based on the information available, ensuring effective relationships with other professionals.
  • Have the ability to work within and contribute to a team.
  • Possess knowledge of service needs for ethnic minority communities.
  • Have confident IT skills and be able to navigate an electronic file system.
  • Have the ability to write clear, concise and robust reports.
  • Have a flexible approach to work and working hours when the need arises.

Contracts are generally full-time but part time and flexible working hours may be considered. Contracts are normally offered over a 3 month period before rolling on for another 3 more months at a time.

With the current covid circumstances, there is home/remote/agile working available within a lot of these requirements.

Ashberry Recruitment have a team of specialist Social Work Consultants who are here to help you find your next contract and support you through your agency Social Work career.

Please contact Gavin our Senior Specialist Social Work Recruiter should you like to discuss this vacancy or should you wish to discuss any other Social Work vacancies of any nature within the North of England and surrounding areas.
