We are looking for a Senior social worker to join an existing team of social workers and intervention workers. The Vulnerable Adolescent Team is an ever developing team and we have recently added the Harmful Sexual Behaviour Pathway to its remit which has its own dedicated ASWPS.

The aim of the team is to provide a service to young people who are identified as being vulnerable due to neglect and or abuse and whose behaviour is a concern.  These young people and their families are often hard to reach so the successful applicant will need to demonstrate the ability to engage with resistant families. 

We aim to help the parents to develop strategies to care for their children whilst managing challenging behaviours and to build confidence and resilience in the young people.  We use Signs of Safety as a working model therefore we are looking for a positive strengths focused worker who is organised and can demonstrate strong social work values. 

We want our practice to avoid practice that blames and stigmatises adolescents, who recognises and can overcome the barriers that adolescents face in society.

We are looking for creativity and innovation in working with hard to reach families. If you would like to be part of a supportive, Knowledgeable, innovative and dedicated team please


and Amandeep. for further information.

We are investing in our workforce and are promoting opportunities to our under-represented groups.  We value equality, diversity and inclusion and are focused on increasing the diversity of our workforce, particularly the number of Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic, Disabled and LGBTQ+ people, so that our teams reflect the communities in the city we serve. We are also supporting staff with unpaid caring responsibilities to work flexibly.

It is a great time to join us and we welcome your application.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and safety of children and vulnerable adults and expect all staff to share this commitment.  All successful candidates will be required to complete an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service Check.

Under the Disability Confident Scheme, disabled applicants, who meet the essential criteria of this job, are guaranteed an interview.

Full-time employees work 37 hours for 52 weeks of the year and we offer a generous holiday entitlement. We are open to discussions about a wide range of flexible working opportunities which benefit you and the Council, including reduced hour contracts, working part time or as a job share.
