Brighter Futures for Children

Full Time, Permanent post

We currently have vacancies for qualified social workers in our children looked after team.

About us

The children looked after team consists of two teams who deal with all children in care. The team works alongside virtual school, fostering and adoption team.

We aim to ensure that our professionals have all the tools they need to do an exceptional job. We have recently introduced Consultant Practitioners into our establishment who are on hand to coach, mentor and support our staff through complex and high-risk case work.

We have also secured excellent training for all our staff through Research in Practice and established a sound partnership with the NSPCC. We value our staff and want to support them in their progression with us.

If you think you might enjoy working at Brighter Futures for Children, you share our values, and you have a social work qualification and current professional social work registration with Social Work England, then we would really like to hear from you.

Our Offer
We offer a supportive environment to grow and develop your career with the opportunity to put your ideas across. Innovation and ambition is strongly encouraged, and you’ll get a great feel for that working in our friendly and collaborative environment.

A competitive salary alongside a range of benefits including:

  • Local Government Pension Scheme
  • 25 days holiday plus public holidays (rising to 32 after service)
  • Discounted Childcare scheme (onsite nursery)
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Season ticket loans
  • A range of local discounts
