Stoke-on-Trent would like to invite a manager with extensive experience of safeguarding to undertake targeted work to further improve the quality of our child protection planning.  The successful candidate will work directly with practitioners to develop our approach to smart planning.


We will aim to use this post to add capacity and upskill the service around smart intervention, aiming to safely end child protection plans sooner and reduce the need for children to go through the Public Law Outline (PLO) process.


This post would both provide additional short-term capacity to help manage practitioners and work on plans, as well as support staff to develop their skills in this area, working one-on-one and with small groups.
