Temporary Senior Social Worker (Senior Practitioner)

We have now launched our Family Solutions Plus practice model in Oxfordshire, to strengthen our social work with children and families who need help and protection. Our new model promotes strengths-based practice with motivational interviewing at its heart, and fully integrated adult specialist practitioners into our teams to provide the right help at the right time. We are seeking additional senior social workers on an interim basis to support our teams to embed our new model – if you’d like to help, we’d love to hear from you! £40 per hour (LTD).

You’ll bring with you a proven track record of safeguarding work with children in need of help and protection alongside sound knowledge of services relevant to children, young people, families, carers, groups and partner agencies. A Social Work Qualification and registration with Social Work England, with relevant post-qualifying experience are essential for this role. We welcome applications for both permanent, fixed term contract and temporary opportunities.

Oxfordshire have invested in significant training and professional development to help our teams develop good quality restorative relationships with the families they work with.

Through our Social Care Academy, we offer our social care practitioners outstanding, aspirational learning and development opportunities to ensure that everyone is enabled to reach their true potential and thrive in their careers. These might be anything from training to reflective coaching, aimed at developing the knowledge and skill that helps individuals to follow their chosen career pathway. We recognise that social care can be fast paced and challenging so we want to promote well-being through learning too.
