An exciting opportunity has arisen at the NSPCC's Camden location for an enthusiastic and dynamic social worker to join the team.

The NSPCC is currently delivering services within The Lighthouse in Camden, the UK's first Child House. This multi-disciplinary innovative service provides physical and emotional health assessment, criminal justice and advocacy support and a range of therapeutic interventions to children and young people, following the disclosure of sexual abuse.

Within The Lighthouse, NSPCC deliver our Letting the Future In (LTFI) service that includes;

- An Assessment of Therapeutic Need
- Intervention to the child or young person who has been sexually abused, where appropriate
- Work with parents/carers to support children through their interventions
- Bespoke interventions with siblings who have been impacted by their sister/brother's abuse.

This whole family approach reflects the impact that child sexual abuse can have within a family.

We are looking for;

A practitioner with the ability to plan and deliver appropriate programmes of work with individuals, families and groups, the ability to identify risk and have experience of child protection intervention as well as up to date knowledge of legislation, research and best practice; and the ability to evaluate the effectiveness of their own practice.

This is an exciting time for the NSPCC, with staff at all levels engaging in a range of new projects and developments. You will have a manageable caseload, excellent training and development opportunities.

This is your opportunity to contribute to service development not only in terms of direct work but also be able to get involved in evaluation, influencing and dissemination of learning and have the opportunity to be part of an exciting new strategy to help end cruelty to children.

For an informal discussion please contact Rachel McPate, Team Manager (rachel.mcpate2@nspcc.org.uk) or Marian Moore, Partnerships Service Manager (marian.moore@nspcc.org.uk).

Please note this is a full time position, but we would consider a job share, so welcome applicants whom are looking for part time positions 21 hours /14 hours per week.

Interviews are scheduled to take place on Wednesday 26th June 2024 and Friday 28th June 2024
