YOU MUST BE A QUALIFIED SOCIAL WORKER  WHO HAS COMPLETED THE ASYE PROGRAMME TO APPLY FOR THIS ROLE.

 

We work in partnership with Birmingham’s Housing Service and St Basil’s to support young people aged 16-17 who have been assessed as in need of support though issues of accommodation and housing. 

WHAT DO WE DO

We provide support in the form of mediation to enable young people to return to their families or family members.  Where this is not possible alternative housing and accommodation options are pursued including Section 17 support.  Where all other options are unsuccessful we will accommodate the young people under Section 20.

WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR

An experienced HCPC-registered social worker with an approved qualification, you will be able to deal with children in need and at times of intense crisis. As such, you will have fantastic verbal and written communication skills and the ability to make clear, evidence-based decisions about the safety of children. With great organisational skills and willing to work flexibly, you will forge close relationships with partner agencies and have a good understanding of key legislation. Your experience of supporting vulnerable children and knowledge of working alongside statutory and voluntary agencies will prove invaluable, as will your resilient ‘can do’ attitude.
