We are looking for Adoption Social Workers or Senior Social Workers to join our team.

At Parents and Children Together (PACT) we are genuinely passionate about what we do. We share a purpose of empowering service users and strengthening families through the quality services we provide. Our energy and professionalism deliver excellence.

We have been at the forefront of adoption services for over 60 years, working with local authorities across the country. With our outstanding rating with Ofsted, we work with a high degree of flexibility and innovation and work with a range of adopters from all backgrounds.

Our adoption teams focus on adoption and recruiting adoptive parents who can consider fostering to adopt and adopting a wide range of children including those over four years old, sibling groups of two or more children, children from diverse ethnicities and children who may have physical or learning disabilities. With access to our specialist therapeutic services, we are proud to provide excellent lifetime support for our families’ adoption journeys.

With your social work experience with children and families, you will be responsible for all aspects of work with our valued applicants from the early stages of recruitment, initial interview, preparation and training, through to successful placement and post placement support up to the making of the adoption order. You will be contributing to delivering training to prospective or approved adopters on a regular basis, therefore experience or an interest in delivering training is required.

The appointed candidate can choose whether to be based in our Reading or London office. Although this is a full time permanent position – 37 hours per week – Part time hours will be considered.

We look forward to hearing from you!
