Our client, Stockport Council is looking for a Social Worker to join their Locality team.

Social workers work within a framework of Restorative Practice and our model seeks to minimise transitions for families, instead focussing on building relationships.

Over the next 12 months the service will undertake an exciting transformation to new ways of working more closely with schools and communities across Stockport. Use of a car will be essential.

  • Maintain and update case notes and other records to required ethical and quality standards.
  • Write reports as required and also where required give evidence in court in relation to care proceedings.
  • Some ability to work effectively on more complex situations, exercise their initiative and evaluate their own practice.
