Full time

We are looking for a Team Manager who shares our values and passion to improve outcomes for children and young people. You will have a good understanding of the challenges that children and families face and want to truly make a positive change whilst driving forward the promotion and development of the Strength in Relationship Practice model, which puts effective relationships with children and families at its heart. 

As a Partner in Practice, we are leading the way in social work with children and their families; our work is child-centred and there is a longstanding, clearly embedded model of practice, based on building effective relationships with children, young people and families.

One of the primary aspects of the role of Team Manager is to lead and manage Social Workers with the support of Practice Supervisors to ensure the delivery of an effective social work service to children and their families in accordance with the relevant policies and procedures.

As you continue to develop, you may decide you want to manage other social worker professionals and we support this with the First line leadership programme in conjunction with a range of corporate leadership programmes facilitated by the council itself.
