Further information

We are looking to recruit skilled and experienced Senior Practitioner to join our Family Safeguarding Teams and children in care team

Family Safeguarding Teams

Family Safeguarding is the new practice model in Peterborough that has received such positive national coverage and the recognition of the Department for Education

There are 6 Family Safeguarding Teams in Peterborough and they manage complex caseloads of Child in Need, Children in need of Protection, Public Law Outline and care proceedings, focusing on children up to 12. They will all use a Motivational Interviewing approach where workers will act in partnership with children and their families to achieve sustainable change and improved outcomes for children. They are supported in this by a multi-disciplinary team that includes adult mental health workers, drug and alcohol recovery workers, and adult domestic abuse workers, and a bespoke intervention model. This is an exciting and creative time in the social work in these teams, and we would welcome applications from a diverse range of workers to enhance our existing workforce.




Children in Care Teams

There are 2 Children in Care teams in Peterborough, these teams work with children of all ages that are in care. They may be finding adoptive placements for them, or supporting long term fostering plans. There will also be some complex young people in residential care, and a group that we are supporting to return home to family members. Workers will need to have excellent skills in direct work with children and young people, and be committed to robust and timely permanence planning for all these children. We are highly aspirational for our children in care, and would expect workers promote good health, educational achievement and developing positive relationships as the key foundations to a successful future.

Applications are reviewed on a daily basis, please do not delay the submission of your applications as this is a rolling advert and will be closed, once a successful candidate has been found.
