Every childhood is worth fighting for. This is our belief. It drives us, and it's the reason our Children's Services team push themselves to transform the lives of children and families – in person, in Hubs nationwide, and through the knowledge they share. Join us as Children's Services Practitioner (Level 3) and make a contribution that means everything. All applicants must hold a social work qualification to be considered for this position.

The successful candidates will be joining the London and South East Hub based in Camden, working with a team of passionate and experienced practitioners and managers in delivering and evaluating a range of exciting and innovative services to children and their families. The portfolio of services provides the opportunity to work in a variety of areas of interest which includes both child and adult-facing work through one-to-one or groupwork delivery.

The current service portfolio in the London and South East Hub includes:

- Domestic Abuse Recovering Together (DART)– a groupwork programme that helps mothers and children strengthen their relationship following domestic abuse.
- Letting the Future In (LTFI) – a therapeutic programme designed to help children and young people who have experienced sexual abuse rebuild their lives and recover from the impact of abuse. Parents and carers are critical to the child or young person's recovery, so we work with them to help them support their child throughout the therapeutic process. We also provide support to siblings.
- Pregnancy in Mind (PiM) this service is a preventative, evidence-based, groupwork, mental health service for parents-to-be who are at risk of or are experiencing mild to moderate anxiety and / or depression during the perinatal period. The programme is for any expectant parent.

This is an exciting time for the NSPCC, with staff at all levels engaging in a range of new projects and developments. As well as contributing in terms of direct work, there will be the opportunity to be involved in evaluation and work openly with our colleagues in media and income generation, as well as alongside Local Campaigns and Schools Service within the Hub.

The role will require holding a manageable caseload and we will provide access to a range of training and development opportunities. Practitioners are supervised and supported by a Team Manager with knowledge and experience of practice, who show a real commitment to enabling practitioners to achieve their full potential.

The ideal practitioners will be passionate about working with, and making a difference for, children and their families. They will be open to learning, committed to working as part of a team and co-working with colleagues internally and externally. The practitioners will have the ability to: plan and deliver appropriate programmes of work with individuals, families, and groups; be reflective in evaluating the effectiveness of their own practice; identify risk; have, and continue to ensure they have, up to date knowledge of legislation, research and best practice; and be able to produce an excellent standard of written work and assessments.

Join us and you will become part of a team that cares about the work they do and the people they work with. You will discover opportunities to grow, along with challenges and a shared purpose that will bring the best out in you, and you will get to find your own way to make a difference that means more, and that impacts millions of young lives.
