We are looking for a social worker to join our team.

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.

Young Lives vs Cancer is open to and in support of flexible working. We are currently defining our approach to hybrid working. Your flexibility requirements and that of the role will be discussed at interview stage with you.

This role falls under the hybrid - variable category. This role is part home, part site based (your contractual base will be both Home and Royal Marsden hospital). You will have the opportunity to work remotely / from home within the parameters of our hybrid working arrangements, with 1 or 2 days a week in the office.

As well as current Social Work England registration you will have:

- Recognised Social Worker qualification
- Experience working with children, young people and their families/carers in a social care setting.
- Experience of working in a multi-disciplinary environment.
- Knowledge of child and young people development.
- An understanding of the impact of serious illness for children, young people and families.
- All applicants should have excellent interpersonal skills.
