We are currently also offering a retention payment to experienced Social Workers with no contractual tie in.
Children’s & Joint Commissioning Services have vacancies within the Through Care Team, to work with children and young people in our care and care leavers. The team provides a comprehensive social work and PA service for the young people and children that we support.
We are committed to providing high quality services to the children and young people that we care for and have cared for and offer an excellent working environment valuing supervision, training and opportunities for professional development. Children Services in Hartlepool priorities the wellbeing of staff through manageable caseloads, a highly supportive and visible management team, an excellent staff wellbeing at work offer and a very positive culture of support and development.
We are especially proud of the support and guidance we offer newly qualified Social Workers. A dedicated team of very experienced practitioners work very closely with the newly qualified Social Workers and Team Managers to ensure newly qualified Social Workers have the very best experience and finish their first year in practice highly skilled and full of confidence. Our most recent Ofsted ILAC inspection and focused visit judged us as being ‘good’ regarding the effectiveness of our safeguarding services and outcomes for children and young people and “outstanding” for services to Children In Our Care. In Hartlepool we take pride in the fact we have consistently promoted Social Workers from within the service to the role of Assistant Team Manager and Team Manager. This is testament to the commitment, dedication and faith we have in our staff team.
The welfare of our staff is paramount and during the Covid pandemic we ensured that all safety measures are in place and risk assessments have been completed to cover office/home working, home visiting and face to face contact with parents/carers and their children. We are currently working a hybrid model allowing staff to work in the office and at home. You should possess or graduate this year with a social work qualification at a degree or diploma level (or equivalent).
Hartlepool Borough Council is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. This post is subject to safer recruitment measures, including an enhanced DBS barring list check and also need to be registered with Social Work England.
