We're now looking for confident, experienced and inspirational social work practitioners to play an influential role in taking our new improvement philosophy to the next level. As one of our first-line managers, you'll ensure we achieve the best outcomes for children, young people and families across the area.

We have a number of roles for Team Managers in Operational Services and Single Assessment.

You'll manage a small team of dedicated and committed social work practitioners, support good performance and robust quality assurance processes, and help staff to continually develop so that they have the skills needed to build resilience and facilitate positive change.

You'll have impressive post-qualification experience working with children and families, within current legislation and government initiatives.

In return, you can look forward to a career-defining Academy that champions and underpins personal and professional growth. Not to mention our reflective supervision model that is a vibrant mix of informal and structured oversight, offering you protected time to think.

Furthermore, you'll receive a comprehensive and rewarding all-round package, subsidised parking, good administrative support and high-quality technology.

We welcome applications for this post and will consider your CV along with a covering letter.

Your covering letter must answer the following questions as well as an explanation for any gaps in employment on your CV:

What skills will you bring to the role of team manager?

- Much of social work is about working in partnership with other agencies both statutory and voluntary. Who do you see as the key partners and describe how you would improve this working together.
- What do you see as benefits of supervision? How would you use it to support your team and also to get the best from your line manager?

Please note that whilst we will shortlist and arrange interviews using a CV, a full application form will need to be completed should you be successful.

Please send your covering letter and CV to Children'sRecruitment@torbay.gov.uk
