We are seeking an experienced, creative, and knowledgeable Social Worker to enhance our pivotal Family Link Team. The Family Link Team act as a link between families and the wider service provided by Noah’s Ark, assessing their needs and introducing them to appropriate services. The Family Link team supports families, within a psychosocial framework using social work models of good practice, during their child’s time with Noah’s Ark and in some cases post-bereavement.

ABOUT YOU
You will be a qualified Social Worker, registered with Social Work England, with experience of working with children and families with complex needs in a statutory or voluntary setting. Experience of needs assessment and care planning is essential. You will enjoy working independently but be capable of effective team working, with experience of inter-professional working across health, education and social care. You will ideally have some experience of supervising others, and a qualification in Practice Education of students would be highly beneficial.

You will be familiar with the needs of children with disabilities and complex needs, and have an
understanding of the challenges facing families.

You will have very strong interpersonal skills, an enthusiastic work attitude and a flexible approach to the changing work environment. You must be willing to work within a palliative care environment with a commitment to the aims and ethos of the Hospice. Experience of bereavement is desirable, but is not essential, as training will be provided.

ABOUT US

Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice helps seriously unwell children and their families make the most of the special time they have together. The majority of babies and children we support are unlikely to reach their 18th birthday. With talented individuals who share our passion to improve the lives of seriously unwell children and their families, we’re changing the landscape for paediatric palliative care in North Central London, West London and Herts Valley.

If you would like to have a confidential discussion about this role, please email the HR Team at
