Assistant Team Manager
Newbury, Berkshire, England
Are you committed to delivering high quality services to children and their families? Then this is where you want to be.
Commencing salary of £32,164 per annum + two responsibility points.
£15K retention bonus payable after 3 years in post. All social work staff in frontline teams have access to a paid 3 month sabbatical after 3 years in post (8 weeks paid and 4 weeks banked leave). Relocation expenses of up to £8K are available to new staff.
Effective social work involves developing and maintaining quality professional relationships with children and families. We are looking for highly skilled, experienced and motivated social workers who are prepared to work in this way and can support and inspire their supervisees and other team members to meeting these professional standards.
West Berkshire has developed a unique package of benefits to support social workers and managers which recognises that managing and working in a frontline team is demanding and to be effective, teams need manageable caseloads, good supervision and a real break from work from time to time that is why we are investing in supervision and sabbaticals for frontline staff. We have a strong 'Signs of Safety' and 'Restorative Practice' culture and aim to work with families in a way which that recognises and builds on their strengths.
In addition to our generous package, annual leave package and Local Government Pension, you will have free car parking, car allowances and access to car loans.
Applicants must be qualified and experienced social workers with a graduate diploma or PQ specialist award (or have equivalent experience) and current HCPC registration, some management experience or experience as a Practice Educator would be beneficial. You must be committed to introducing effective working practices to meet the changing needs of children and young people. You must have excellent knowledge of SW legislation and a strong commitment to safeguarding children.
A full driving licence is essential because of the rural nature of the district.
