One Adoption is a new Regional Adoption Agency, a shared adoption service across the 5 local authorities in West Yorkshire. We are seeking adoption social workers to work on a casual basis across the region in a number of different teams across the region. This is an exciting time to be involved in shaping the new regionalised arrangements, developing a high quality adoption service that is timely, flexible and responsive.

We will provide good supervision and membership of a supportive team, with good opportunities for professional development. You have a chance to be part of something truly stimulating, the pursuit of excellence.

If you are a well-motivated and dedicated practitioner; able to demonstrate experience of effectively undertaking social work then we would like you to apply to become part of our team.

We want you to inspire us and have a real impact on the way we work. In return you will gain the opportunity to develop your professional skills and your career in a challenging but supportive environment. You will need to be a skilled social worker and engage well with children and adoptive families.
