The 0-25 disability service is offering an exciting opportunity for a team manager to join the service and lead on transitions for 14 to 25 year olds, supporting young people and their families to move from children to adult services.

The 0-25 Service provides all statutory social work services to children, young people and their families with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities up to the age of 25. The 0-25 service is made up of two teams which work closely together, the 0-18 team and 14 to 25 transitions team. The transition service works with children and young adults with more complex disabilities and needs from the age of 14 to 25.

The 0-25 Teams in Peterborough are busy, lively and interesting and would ideally suit a manager who is proactive and adaptable, and who has a passion for ensuring that children and young people with complex needs in our area receive a positive experience when having their needs met. A Team Manager in the service should be strong and supportive and provide good quality support and guidance. Additionally the service offers a range of opportunities to develop further professionally across the adults children’s and SEND agendas.

The Teams complete Section 17 Child and Family Assessments and carry out S47 and S42 investigations, manage cases through children's and adults safeguarding, Children in need and Children Looked After and complete MCA and Court of Protection work. The service works across all children's and Adult legislation including the Children Act, the Mental capacity Act, the Care Act and Children and Families Act. The work is complex and interesting. It is varied on a day to day basis and allows for a high level of multi-agency working, creativity and autonomy. A team Manager joining the service can come from a varied background in adult and/or children's social care. All social work backgrounds and skills are relevant and transferable to the service for those with an interest in developing new skills and knowledge around disability and complex needs.
