Work in a Local Authority that uses Systemic Practice & Solution Focused Therapy

A London based Local Authority is looking to take on experienced Social Workers within their Protection and Assessment Team. The Local Authority uses Systemic Practice, which you will receive training on, as a way to draw upon established relationships to help prevent and reduce stress and difficulties for all family members. This is just one of the changes the Local Authority is currently making in order to help improve outcomes for children.

Social Workers who are joining the Local Authority will be a part of small teams of 6 who will receive personal support from an Advanced Practitioner. The team will also benefit from a Business Support Officer who is able to help with any admin so that you are able to focus on the Social Work. Regular group supervisions are also common occurrence, and this way any complex or challenging case can be discussed with other team members and the team manager. The Local Authority is also committed to ensure there is a focus on relationship-based Social Work as they don't want their Social Workers wasting their time on bureaucratic tasks.

Working in the Protection and Assessment team you will be taking incoming referrals from the public and carrying out assessments, based on the threshold you will be able to signpost the case to the appropriate service.
