Children's Social Worker

Job description
Bristol City Council are looking for 2 x Qualified Social Workers to work in their Through Care team.

Main Duties & Responsibilities

This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic qualified social worker to join a busy Through Care Service. The posts are based at B Bond, Smeaton Road in Bristol in a busy vibrant office. You would be joining an established unit consisting of a practice lead, unit coordinator; social workers, support worker and personal advisors who support the looked after children and care leavers in the Through Care Service.

The social work role is varied; you will be expected to manage a caseload of children in care fulfilling the statutory requirements and care planning to help them achieve their goals and potential. Some of the work can be reactive and fast paced; you will need the skills to work, on occasion, in pressurised situations. You will need the ability to work on your own, be creative, respond to changing demands and be able to challenge.

You will need to have excellent communication skills and the ability to form and maintain relationships with children and their families. Children are placed all over the country so you will need the ability to travel to carry out your tasks. Having your own car is desirable but not essential as this will make it easier travel.

The role demands a high standard of written work, organisational skills and IT capabilities. A good understanding of the needs of the children and families we work with is crucial.
