Job description: Fostering Social Worker

Morning everyone!

I'm working with Walsall Council at the moment and they have an urgent requirement for an experienced Fostering Practitioner. Pay rates fall in line with the MoU in operation across the region and you're initially looking at a 6 month contract (but as with most locum assignments this is with a view to extension).

This is a specialist Social Work role within the Walsall Fostering Service with a main focus of the role being the recruitment of new Foster Carers. In this role you will submit reports, assessments and plans within Court and regulated timescales. You will implement and evaluate safeguarding measures to ensure that all children have the opportunity to reach their full potential. You will be working with children and families to support vulnerable service users to ensure that the needs of the children are met.

The ideal candidate will have:
*Social work degree, or equivalent
*Social Work England registration
*Enhanced DBS
*Experience of working within a fostering team for at least 18 months (Local Authority or IFA)
*Full UK driving license and vehicle

The benefits of working with Oscar at Service Care Solutions:
