UK Job Network

Our client, Swindon Borough Council, is looking for an Assistant Team Manager to join their Schools team.

As an assistant team manager within the Social Workers in Schools team you will assist in the line management of the 8 social workers based in individual schools. The ultimate objective is to help reduce referral rates to children's social care, to enhance school's response to safeguarding issues, increase collaboration between social workers, school staff and parents, to improve educational attainment and improve relationships between the social worker and young people.

The Social Workers in Schools Project provides a unique opportunity to promote better inter-agency working between schools and the children's social care system. Social workers are able to build relationships with children, young people and families and undertake work that would otherwise not be possible, taking children's cases from initial referral and assessment through to long term work if that is required.

The project is being independently evaluated by CASCADE, the Children's Social Care Research and Development Centre at Cardiff University, with the first round of findings expected in summer 2021.

* Degree in Social Work or equivalent qualification
