This is an exciting opportunity to develop a new team and really make your mark, leading the way in providing the best service possible for the children and young people who need us the most.

When a child is diagnosed with cancer life becomes full of fear, for them and their family. Fear of treatment, but also of families being torn apart, overwhelming money worries, of having nowhere to turn, no one to talk to.

At Young Lives vs Cancer, we help families find the strength to face whatever cancer throws at them. And you could be a part of the team making it happen.

About you:

Our work is rewarding but also complex and demanding; you will need to be resourceful and resilient.

Due to retirement, an exciting opportunity has arisen to lead and develop a social work service for children and young people with cancer in Leeds.

We are looking for a social work qualified experienced people manager to take responsibility for operational management and development of our social work services.

You will ensure that effective services are delivered to children and young people with cancer and their families through the professional supervision of our staff group, working across split sites.

You will have:

- A minimum 4 years’ experience of working with children and young people including complex case work and risk assessment and care planning, caseload management and interagency working
- Experience of managing safeguarding for children and vulnerable adults, legislation, procedures and best practice
- Experience of supervising students and / or staff in a social care setting • Experience of delivering support to young people and families via different mediums including individuals, groups and digital delivery.
