Qualified Social Worker - Blackpool Council - Awaken Team, Childrens Services - £35ph + Negotiable!

An exciting and rewarding opportunity has arisen in Blackpool's newly re-modelled Awaken Team to recruit to an agency social work post. Awaken is a multi-agency Child Exploitation and Missing from Home service led by Children's Social Care, Police and Health who's primary function is to support children and young people who are at risk/ victims of child criminal exploitation and/or child sexual exploitation and bring offenders to justice.

As a Social Worker on Awaken, within our new model of working you will not be responsible for completing statutory functions i.e Children and Family Assessments; S47 enquiries; CIN plans and CP plans as your work will be focussed on building trusted meaningful relationships with the young person using a therapeutic model in order to build on their resilience and strengths to bring about positive change.

This exciting new way of working ensures that our Social Workers can dedicate the necessary time to children and young people who need our support the most. Our innovative and creative approaches allow us to engage young people outside of statutory constraints.

The team are looking to recruit a motivated individual with a diverse range of skills who is able to demonstrate a flexible approach and clear understanding of child exploitation and has a passion for working with adolescents.
