We are excited to be welcoming applications for Social Workers to join our Assessment teams. This is a fantastic opportunity for a qualified social worker to work in a supportive, fast paced team committed to ensuring children and families are supported and safe.

A number of these exciting opportunities have become available as social workers have been successful in moving to specialist positions within the wider service, as we have a strong culture in York of ensuring workers are able to develop their careers.   There are full time and part time (18.5hrs) opportunities available.

We welcome applications from newly qualified social workers through to those with more experience. If you have more than three years post qualifying experience may offer to directly recruit you as a Senior Social Worker at a higher pay grade. Please speak to us if this is of interest.

The Assessment Service are 3 teams of social workers who work quickly to establish trusted relationships with families who are in need of support and children who may be in need of protection. Managers are supportive and easily accessible, caseloads are well managed and you will receive regular reflective supervision to help you make the best decisions for children in York.

It is an exciting time to join York as successful candidates will be involved in driving a strong value base of good practice in York with embedding our new practice model, Building Brighter Futures.  We are on an 18-month journey of implementation of  Signs of Safety led by Andrew and Pene Turnell; as well as bespoke training in Family Seeing with Kevin Campbell, with training planned throughout 2024 and 2025.  Successful candidates will receive continuous training, access to knowledge banks and will be part of the leadership group of the Building Brighter Futures practice model forward.

Successful candidates will have a manageable caseload to allow you to form strong relationships with children, young people and the team around them. Our social workers work in a high challenge and high support environment with an established and committed team. There is regular one to one supervision as well as peer supervision.

Candidates will need to be highly motivated and committed to ensuring timescales are met to ensure our young people receive a good quality service. The candidate will need to be able to work independently, with skills in working within timescales and with conflicting priorities.

It is critical that candidates have excellent written and oral communication skills.  The preparation of clear, analytical, and coherent reports is a requirement of this post.  Assessing need and writing children’s plans which include the voice of children, young people and families throughout the process is essential.

If you are a dedicated Social Worker who wants to make a difference for children and young people, then apply now.
