Today, 12 children and young people in the UK hear the shocking news they have cancer. CLIC Sargent is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families, offering them care and support every step of the way. You can be a part of helping them live their life to the full.

We are looking for a qualified and experienced Social Worker to cover maternity leave for 35 hours per week. This will include blended home based and office based working at the Birmingham Queen Elizabeth Hospital to provide support to children and young people (0-24 years) diagnosed with cancer and leukaemia and their families.

To start from 27/9/21 for 48 weeks

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

– 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.
