An exciting opportunity has arisen at the NSPCC regional hub based in Leeds for an enthusiastic and dynamic social worker to join our team, where you will have the opportunity to develop specialist knowledge and expertise delivering a range of services, contributing to the wellbeing and safety of children and young people and their carers.

As a Children's Services Practitioner Level 3 , you will have a qualification in Social Work and will be responsible for providing direct services, plan and deliver services, contribute to their evaluation, work in partnership with other agencies and involve service users in planning, decision making and evaluation.

In this role you will 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. You will also contribute to the delivery of local campaigns and work alongside our School's Service team to reach more children, young people and families.

We are looking for a Social Worker who wants to work constructively and creatively with a real passion for enhancing the life chances of children and young people and their parents/carers who has the ability to plan and deliver appropriate programmes of work with individuals, families and groups who has:

- the ability to assess risk and need

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

We are committed to play our part in creating and fostering a society that promotes mutual respect and that truly values individuality and difference.
