We are looking for an experienced Social Worker to join our team based at Great Ormond Street Hospital supporting children and young people diagnosed with cancer.

We pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality support tailored to the needs of the children and young people and their families. The work we do is rewarding but also complex and demanding. You will be part of a close-knit Young Lives vs Cancer social work team, working with an established NHS multi-disciplinary team and services in the community.

The role is full-time (35 hours) and is part home, part site-based (your contractual base will be both Home and Hospital) within the parameters of our hybrid working arrangements.

About You

You will be committed to delivering high quality social work support to promote the best outcomes for the children, young people and families we work with. You will need to be resourceful and resilient. You will have a positive attitude and be willing to embrace difference. As part of the wider Young Lives vs Cancer team you will actively engage with the work of the charity and welcome opportunities to get involved.

You will have:

- A recognised Social Worker qualification and current registration with Social Work England
- Experience working with children, young people and their families/carers in a social care setting.
- Experience of working in a multi-disciplinary environment, ideally in an NHS setting.
- Sound knowledge of child and young people development.
- An understanding of the impact of serious illness for children, young people and their families.
- Excellent interpersonal skills.

Cancer doesn’t discriminate and neither does Young Lives vs Cancer. We positively welcome your application irrespective of your background and we actively encourage applications from underrepresented communities.

What we Offer

In return for your commitment, we offer a reward package that includes generous annual leave entitlement, enhanced pension, and an employee savings scheme. To find out more about our benefits package, please visit our website.

Young Lives vs Cancer is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.
