We have remodelled the way we deliver social work services and invite suitably experienced and qualified applications for the position of Social Work Unit Manager.

Applications for the role of Social Work Unit Manager within the MASH would be welcomed from applicants who are able to demonstrate excellent customer care in a child and family centred environment and who are passionate about making a positive difference to the lives of children and young people.

You will be responsible for ensuring that there is clear and consistent management oversight of services to children and families, through the management of cases allocated to Social Workers in your unit.
