(Plus a relocation package of up to £8,000. Terms & conditions will apply)

Working 36.5 hours per week

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

We’re now looking for committed Team Managers to join our Assessment and Short Term Intervention (ASTI) team – people who share our vision of improving the services we offer, and pulling our standards up to the highest levels. We’re currently delivering on ambitious plans for change, but with supportive management, sensible caseloads and the potential to control your own workload and career progression, it’s a really exciting opportunity.

You will be at the helm of everything our dedicated staff are trying to achieve for Birmingham’s most vulnerable children. The young people referred to us are in urgent need of intervention and support, so you will guide your colleagues to complete thorough assessments of their situation, acting quickly to find suitable measures that will keep them safe. That means you will be making some difficult decisions about children in care, but with the tools at your disposal to offer them a good quality of life, these decisions need to be made. You will also be responsible for overseeing the quality of care being offered by your staff, so you will supervise their work and maintain the appropriate legal, regulatory and statutory standards.
