22.2 Hours per Week
If you are passionate and enthusiastic about developing others and getting the best outcomes for children and young people, and are looking for part time working, then this is the opportunity for you.
In Solihull, we want our workers to invest in the children and families we work with, and to do this, we must invest in them. One of the ways we invest in our workers is through the Advanced Practitioner role.
We are looking for two qualified social workers with knowledge and experience of child protection and working with looked after children to join us. Supporting the work of the Principal Social Worker, you will be at the forefront of development.
We know that workers value access to support and supervision, want opportunities to develop and feel they are achieving. This role helps our workers to meet these needs and we are proud of the difference made by the Advanced Practitioner, which is evident in feedback from staff and in our great retention rate.
You will bridge the gap between operational practice and workforce development.
The role is varied, and includes; role-modelling and co-working discreet pieces of case work with less experienced workers, providing group supervision, devising individual development plans, assessing workers’ development, designing and delivering training alongside colleagues in workforce development and undertaking quality assurance activity.
Working hours for both posts are 22.2 hours per week and provide the opportunity for you to make the most of our flexible working options.
This post is covered by the Fluency Duty, as outlined in the Code of Practice on the English language requirements for public sector workers.
Solihull Council has a responsibility for, and is committed to, safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults at risk, and requires all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
This post will require an enhanced DBS check.
Interviews will be held on Thursday, 25 October 2018 at the Council House, Solihull.
Please note we do not accept CVs.
