If you are a talented Social Worker why not take this opportunity to be part of our developing Children who are Disabled Social Work Team?

This is an established service that has expanded to work with children and young people with Aspergers Syndrome and Autistic Spectrum Conditions, offering a range of interesting and challenging opportunities for practice.

The service covers the full range of statutory Social Work with Children who are Disabled including Children in Need, Child Protection, Court work and Children in Care.

You will receive monthly supervision in a friendly and supportive team, with excellent learning and development opportunities and twice-yearly continuing professional development reviews and the chance to further your career.

Full time and part-time posts available.

Interview date: To be confirmed.

You must have a degree in Social Work or equivalent, be registered with the HCPC and be able to fulfil the travel requirements of the post.

Dorset County Council requires all newly qualified social workers to undertake the assessed and supported year in employment (ASYE) and meet the expected standards during the ASYE period.

The ASYE arrangements should normally apply to the appointment of all newly qualified social workers who qualified after September 2012 unless they can demonstrate that they already fully meet the standards laid out in the professional capabilities framework (PCF).

This post involves working with children and/or having access to significant information about them and will be subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service check.
