Social Worker (Experienced level) - Children's Social Work Teams

We are recruiting experienced social workers to join our Children’s Social Work Team and help us achieve our vision for all our children, young people and families in Medway.   

You will have a varied and manageable caseload that provides you with the opportunity to work proactively using the Signs of Safety practice model.

Reporting directly to a Team Manager, you will benefit from regular individual and group supervision.  You will also be supported to develop your skills and expertise at every stage of your career.

A relevant social work qualification together with Social Work England registration is essential. You should also have experience of working with vulnerable children in a statutory setting, and be able to demonstrate strong assessment and analytical skills.

In return for your commitment, we are proud to offer an excellent benefits package including a market premia payment of £2,500 per annum (paid in 12 equal payments) and a retention payment of £3,000 per annum (paid after 1 years’ continuous service with Medway).
