Qualified Social Worker - Salford City Council - Looked after Children Team (LAC) - Up to £40ph!

Salford is a fantastic place to work, and our employees thrive working here. We are incredibly proud of our Salford Family, of which you will become an integral part.

We want to make sure all our children and young people have the best possible start in life, so they have every chance to succeed and be happy and this was recognised in our last Ofsted report which rates our overall services as 'good'.
We are now seeking to appoint qualified, experienced social workers to our Looked After Children's Team, who will shape and deliver outcomes for the children and families of Salford. We want people who share our passion, people who can think creatively and flexibly, people who have our children at the heart of everything they do, people who recognise the strength of working together.

Your main duties will include: holding a caseload of children who are looked after and ensuring that they achieve the very best outcomes in terms of their health, education and overall aspirations. Regularly review the children/young people's care plan via regular care planning meetings and our Looked After Children service reviews led by the Safeguarding Quality and Assurance Team. Build positive relationships with children, carers and all professionals involved in working with the child and their family. Here In Salford we place great importance on care planning, stability and permanence for all our children. You will have access to panels to ensure that early intervention and wrap around support is in place for children where stability in placement is compromised. We also have an excellent leaving care service that works with our young people up to the age of 21 and 25 in some cases, and a bespoke service from our partners in CAMHS specific to Salford known as STARLAC who work with our most vulnerable children in care.
