Job description: We are looking for a dedicated and creative Team Manager for our Assessment Service.

The assessment teams are key to our safeguarding duties, working with children in need or who are subject to protection plans or looked after. We use the single assessment to develop a plan for the children that sets out the involvement of professionals and family members.

We place the wishes and feelings of the children at the heart of our practice, so your team will encourage and support the involvement of children, parents and carers in attending meetings and making plans. And, you will look at ways to help parents to develop and improve their parenting skills so that they can care for their children within a safer and happier home environment.

You will ensure that children and families receive assessments and services relevant to their needs and that the highest professional standard are applied and managed within budget. You'll be managing and supporting staff and working with partners to deliver the best possible outcomes for local children and their families.

In return, we will give you the time and support you need to make a difference. We are driving down caseloads and investing heavily in better IT and mobile working technology to help staff spend more quality time doing what matters.
