Job description: Service Care Solutions are currently recruiting for an experienced social worker to be based in the 11+ team at Cardiff Council. This will be a full time position for an initial period of 3 months and with a view to this being extended on a rolling basis.

The 11+ Team is currently a statutory Social Work team within the Adolescent Service.

The successful social worker will have a case load of no more than 12 - 13 young people, who maybe 'edge of care' or/and be exploited in some form, whether sexually, criminally or be a high risk of being so. There may also be other issues within the family such as domestic violence, mental health and/or substance misuse.

Although currently a statutory case managing team, the 11+ team will change functions at some point in the near future to become non-case holding. The team will instead continue to work with adolescents and their families in creative ways to build resilience for them and Children's Services.
