Social Worker Crewe CiN/CP
We are looking for passionate and resilient social workers to join our Child in Need / Child Protection Team in Crewe. We want Cheshire East to be a great place to be young where all children are well supported to maximise their life chances; a place where they can thrive in our care, are safe from any harm or abuse, have access to outstanding education and feel prepared for adulthood. For any child at risk, this means putting their needs at the heart of everything we do so that they experience a sense of safety, security and permanence.
You will need to be a qualified and HCPC registered social worker with experience in safeguarding vulnerable children under Child in Need / Child Protection, be familiar with Court proceedings, and working with Cared For Children. Our social workers have access to a comprehensive programme of professional development and training and high quality reflective supervision; we have worked hard to reduce caseloads across all of our teams and we are confident that with the use of flexible working and smart IT devices, you will have the time to make a genuine difference in the lives of children and their families. Cheshire East Children’s Services has introduced Signs of Safety as our operational model and there is currently a full programme of training across the teams as this work unfolds.
For experienced and progressed workers who join us, a recruitment bonus of £3,000 is payable on successful completion of your probationary period. We also have a well-established and comprehensive ASYE programme and we may have a small number of openings for the right candidates.
