We are looking for an Adoption Social Worker or Senior Social Worker 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 delivering training to prospective or approved adopters on a regular basis, therefore experience or an interest in delivering training is essential.

We look forward to hearing from you!

PACT is a supportive and respectful place where people are passionate about making a positive difference to the lives of women, children and families from many different backgrounds. We continuously look to progress the ways in which we create families and bring people together and encourage applications from people across all communities. We are committed to ensuring that our people and our services reflect the diversity of the communities we serve and applications from people from under-represented groups are particularly welcomed.

PACT is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. Anyone joining our team is subject to PACT’s Safer Recruitment pre-appointment enquiries. These include the provision of documentation of the right to work in the UK, Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) check, overseas police check where applicable and references covering a minimum 5 year period. All opportunities are based in the UK.
