We have an exciting opportunity for you to join us in Children’s Services Learning Academy as our Principal Social Worker and Service Manager. You will lead and manage the Quality Assurance and Performance Framework and in doing so advise, inform and champion social work practice.

About you:

- The ability to analyse information, draw conclusions and effect judgements based on outcomes and risk.
- Proven experience of working with children and families in the context of current legislation and government initiatives.
- Evidence of having delivered improved outcomes and impact for children and young people.
- Experience of facilitating learning via a variety of settings and teaching methods.
- Thorough understanding and experience of working with quality assurance frameworks

Recently nominated for ‘Innovation and delivery at times of adversity - The rebirth of an achieving Torbay Children’s Service’ at the LGC awards, you'll be part of a progressive team dedicated to making young lives everything they should be.

What we can offer:

It’s vital that the rewards package our high-calibre people receive reflects the impact they make.

Our benefits include Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS), a minimum of 25 days annual leave (full-time employees) plus Bank Holidays, subsided car parking, and a range of colleague benefits and discounts through our staff benefits scheme.

We are committed to a restorative and relational model of working ‘WITH’ our children and young people so they remain at the heart of our practice. Restorative and relational based practice describes a way of being, an underpinning ethos, which enables us to build and maintain healthy relationships, resolve difficulties and repair harm when relationships breakdown.
