Team Manager - Warrington Borough Council - Children with Disabilities Team - Up to £40ph!
We are looking for a Team Manager within one of our Children with disabilities team. You should already have experience at Team Manager and at least some of your social worker career will have been working with children with disabilities. You should also have experience of supervising and managing staff, driving performance and managing complex situations.
We have recently moved to our new building in Time Square, this is a great work space with hubs and pods which will provide a great environment to work, furthermore, with cafes and restaurants on the doorstep. In addition, as a result of the pandemic we have reviewed our working practices and now offer significant opportunities to work from home.
It's an exciting time to be joining Children Social Care in Warrington as we are embedding relationship based practice and we were graded 'Good' in our Ofsted inspection. Our Team Managers also play a crucial role in implementing our practice model, and work closely with our Social Workers, Senior Practitioners and Service Managers in developing outstanding social work practice across the teams.
As a Team Manager in Warrington you will have the opportunity to develop your skills and experience further as we support you on your own career development journey.
Here in Warrington we are proud to be graded Good in all areas in our 2019 Ofsted inspection. Which says;-
"Most social workers are permanent and experienced employees. This is complemented by a continuous supply of both recently qualified and qualifying social workers, who unanimously endorse the high standard of support and early career development provided by the local authority. Social workers' morale across the service is high, and they are realising the benefits of smaller teams, continuous allocation to children, manageable caseloads and the considerable investment in their training and development. Social workers also appreciate the importance given to their emotional well-being and welfare through regular 'check-ins'."
We have a strong vision for social work practice in Warrington and are developing a new approach to social work. We are currently embedding a relationship based practice model that has systemic practice at its core. We are working alongside the Centre for Systemic Social Work, who are providing a comprehensive training programme to social workers and managers across our teams.
In Warrington we want all children and families to benefit from high quality and purposeful relationships with professionals. We believe this will help create the best opportunities for people to change and reach their full potential. We also believe one of the most effective ways to improve the outcomes for children and families is through providing our social workers with the best conditions in which they can thrive.
So if you want to make a difference to the lives of vulnerable children and young people with relationship based practice at the heart of everything we do and develop great relationships, then come and join us in Warrington where we are passionate about our work with children and families. We have high aspirations for our children and welcome those who share our ambition.
