We are now recruiting to the 2020 cohort of Newly Qualified Social Workers (NQSW) in their Assessed and Supported Year in Employment (ASYE) across Peterborough and Cambridgeshire for both Adult and Children’s services.
We offer an excellent package of support for NQSWs, building a strong foundation to your professional social work career, including:
• High quality, regular individual and group supervision
• A structured training programme mapped to the KSS
• Action Learning Sets to help you translate your knowledge and skills into live practice
• Support from a dedicated ASYE co-ordinator during your first year in employment, alongside your manager and ASYE assessor

Peterborough and Cambridgeshire councils work closely together with shared a senior management structure who have a clear vision for its services. We are committed to innovative ways of working and welcome like-minded people to join our dedicated and motivated workforce.

Application is by CV and shortlisted applicants will be invited to an assessment centre at the end of March. This will involve a group work activity and interview.

The cohort of teaching is planned to start in September 2020 and candidates are required to have registered with Social Work England in order to start their ASYE. However, you may be employed in an alternatively qualified social care role until your degree results are obtained after which you can then register with Social Work England and register to start your ASYE.

Appointment to this post will be subject to the outcome of an Enhanced Disclosure obtained through the Disclosure and Barring Service.

To apply please download the short application form and send it along with your CV to socialcarejobs@peterborough.gov.uk stating if you are interested in a role in Adult or Children’s social care.
