Job description: We are recruiting on behalf of Thurrock Council for a Social Worker to join the Adoption Children Court Team.

Thurrock's Court Team is a dynamic, supportive and friendly team that works with children in care, where care proceedings are in progress and with children subject to plans for adoption. Keeping children safe and achieving permanency for them is at the fore-front of our team's work ethos.

This is an opportunity to join the team and to undertake rewarding work with the satisfaction that comes from helping to achieve better outcomes for vulnerable children.
Here in Thurrock we place great significance on providing the best services for our children who are looked after.

Are you passionate about court work and adoption? You will have a high standard of undertaking assessments, court statements, care plans and giving oral evidence.
