Description:
This vacancy is currently only open to individuals already working at Cafcass. If you apply from outside of this team, your application will only be reviewed by our Hiring Managers if the role is not filled internally and AFTER it has been opened to external applicants to apply. Instead, we recommend you revisit this site after the initial expiry date has passed to see if the vacancy is open to external applicants.

At Cafcass we know why you became a Social Worker. To make a difference. We know you want to spend time on the parts of your work that really enable that to happen. We also understand you want support to continue your professional development while having a healthy work life balance.

At Cafcass we share your ambition. Maybe that’s why when OFSTED inspected us recently they rated us "outstanding" and we have won prestigious awards such as Social Work Employer of the Year award and multiple other accolades around flexible working and health and wellbeing too.

Our Social Workers are called Family Court Advisers. They advise the Family Court as children and families go through significant events including care proceedings, adoption and parental separation.

In this role you will be part of our team supporting Stevenage that is based in Stevenage although the technology we provide combined with the trust we place in you as a professional allows you to work flexibly in court, at home and, of course, with children and families.

Should you join us you’ll use your social work skills and experience to understand what the child needs, wants and feels. Then you will advise the Family Courts on the best course of action for the child. You’ll do this by providing confident, powerful and succinct written case analysis and make recommendations to the court. You’ll also attend court and be an advocate for the best interests of the child, ensuring their voice is not lost.

As you can imagine our work is demanding. So to be considered for such a privileged, responsible role of being the voice of some of the most vulnerable children in England, there are a few things we're looking for from you:

Qualified Social Worker with at least 3 years experience

Registered with the HCPC as a Social Worker in England

Experienced at working with highly vulnerable children and families

An expert in safeguarding, child engagement, inter-agency working, case analysis, planning and recording.

We also think you for you to succeed and truly make a difference you should be someone who;

Is resilient and organised

Can work proportionately

Has strong, intuitive IT skills

Is an effective verbal and written communicator

We would also like to draw your attention that this role has been identified as suiting someone who has a full driving licence. This is because of the nature of the work undertaken, the geographical area involved, and that public transport is not considered a viable alternative.

Should you join us, not only will you receive a competitive salary but a range of other benefits which we believe collectively makes for a market-leading offer. Further information is in the attached document as is the formal job description / person specification and other relevant information.

Further information on this payment and terms and conditions will be provided in due course should you be successful.

To apply we have a simple application process and you can upload your current, up-to-date CV and a provide a short supporting statement.

We’d also like to let you know of the timescales we aiming to work to for this recruitment campaign. This will also help you know when you can expect to hear from us by.

Last date for applications:

Wednesday 20 March 2019

These dates are potentially subject to change but rest assured we will be in touch as quickly as we can.
