This is a very exciting time to join our newly created fostering service, as we have modernised and aligned the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough fostering teams. You will be involved from the start in supporting the service to build on its strengths and become an outstanding fostering agency. A commitment and passion for supporting foster families and the children in care that they are looking after is essential.

We have a vacancy for a fostering social worker in the supervision and support team. If you have skills and experience in supervision and support of foster families we would love to hear from you. Peterborough City Council offer excellent career and salary progression opportunities and are committed to your ongoing development and training.

We are a friendly, hardworking and dedicated staff group who offer a supportive work environment.

You must be a qualified social worker with current SWE registration, we are a countywide service and willingness to travelling is essential as some assessments are undertaken out of county. The successful candidate should also have the ability to work flexibly including some evenings and occasional weekends.

We are proud to serve the diverse communities of Peterborough, and want our workforce to reflect this diversity, which we believe is beneficial for our employees, the organisation, and the communities we serve.

Appointment to this post will be subject to the outcome of an Enhanced Disclosure obtained through the Disclosure and Barring Service. The Council is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
