Team Manager - Biddulph Specialist Safeguarding Unit

Grade 11 - £40,057 - £43,821

Staffordshire County Council continues to undertake significant investment in its Children's Social Care services known as Families First.

A rare opportunity has arisen in Staffordshire’s Families First for a Team Manager in the Biddulph area of Staffordshire Moorlands.

Staffordshire’s Families First is one of the largest Children's Services in England and as a consequence there are excellent career opportunities for highly motivated and experienced staff to join a ‘Good’ Children’s Service.

Here in Staffordshire we are committed to work with partners and families to enable vulnerable children and young people to be safe and secure, to promote physical and emotional well-being and to help them achieve their full potential within their communities.

In order to do this, staff are provided with high quality regular supervision, a second to none training offer which equips staff to have the tools to do their job both confidently and competently alongside excellent line management support.

You will find Staffordshire’s Families First has a wealth of experience and knowledge within the workforce, which has remained relatively stable in comparison to other Local Authorities. This means that Staffordshire’s Families First can provide a consistent and good standard of line management support for all levels. Our recent staff engagement survey reported that three quarters of staff reported that they had had personal development time with their line managers and that they felt that they were well supported to do their job.

We are looking for staff therefore who want to commit to Staffordshire’s Families First on its journey through to outstanding services for children and their families. As Staffordshire is such a large local authority there are numerous opportunities to learn and experience working across a variety of geographical and demographical service areas.

Making sure you are well supported and given the opportunity to develop and progress is a high priority at Staffordshire and is very important to us. We have excellent staff development programme and good practice is recognised and rewarded.

You will receive:

• An excellent benefits package including a childcare voucher scheme

• A highly regarded structure of support for all staff, including regular supervision

• Exceptional opportunities for learning and development throughout your career

• Specialist support groups
