We are looking for a child-focused, nurturing, friendly 'can do' qualified social worker to fit within our team based in Bromsgrove. We have fantastic carers and quality well-resourced support easily available in order that our Social Workers can positively affect outcomes for children.
Our Social Workers are valued members of our team and have PROTECTED low caseloads of fostering households in order to meet our high standards. We work utilising PACE, DDP and Social Pedagogy in order to inform our therapeutic parenting. We are looking to attract people who can envisage a long term career with us delivering excellence to our carers, children and young people.
All applicants must be qualified SWE registered Social Workers . It would be highly advantageous to have experience in Fostering but it is essential that the successful candidate has experience of Childrens services and shares our passion to make a difference to children and young peoples lives.
The position is based at our comfortable office in Bromsgrove with easy parking but our carers are based all over the West Midlands so the ability to travel independentally is essential. The successful applicant will be trained by us to DDP level 2 so will already need to think therapeutically about children with particular regard to their making and maintaining positive attachments.
Children Always First is the first organisation in the UK to be DDP certified by the Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy Institute and prides itself on being an ethical fostering agency which truly puts the needs of children first.
You will work with a range of colleagues including our own in house therapist and the renowned Dr Kim Golding who helps ensure that DDP remains an essential part of our delivery. We also have a Youth Support Team of 5 full time Youth and Childrens Support Workers who practice within a social pedagogical model.
