Further Information

Peterborough City Council is looking for a committed and self-motivated person to provide support and advice to Disabled Children and Young People.

As a 0 to 25 Disability service our client group is disabled children and their families and those young people requiring support to transition into adult services and early adulthood.
The service operates as one service of two teams; a 0 to 18 team and a transitions team for 14 to 25. There is cross over and so some social workers have mixed case work of both children and young adults.

We are looking for a Senior Practitioner for children’s 0 to 18 team.
Experienced social workers with an interest in or experience of working with disabled children and young people are encouraged to apply.
The Team's priorities are to ensure that these Children and Young People’s needs are assessed and supported in line with the respective legislation and statutory requirements; supporting positive and aspirational outcomes for our children and young people.


You will be a qualified and experienced social worker with an understanding of the challenges facing disabled children and young people and their families.
You will also have enthusiasm and creativity in engaging with disabled children and young people.

You will require an ability to work on own initiative as well as part of a team, to meet deadlines and work effectively under pressure. To be punctual, reliable and work with integrity.

There will be an occasional need to work some unsocial hours and the ability to undertake visits out of county is essential. As such applicants will require a full driving licence with use of own car.

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

Interviews will take place on 10th February 2022.

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