Are you passionate about making a difference in the lives of vulnerable children and families? Do you thrive in a dynamic and supportive environment where your skills are valued and rewarded? If so, we have an exciting opportunity for you!

Our esteemed client, a reputable local authority in South East London, is seeking dedicated Qualified Social Workers to join their Safeguarding & Care Planning Service (East & West) within Children's Services. As a vital member of this team, you will play a pivotal role in safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people in need.

About the Role and Team: The Safeguarding & Care Planning Service (East & West) works with children & families following transfer from the Referral & Assessment Service. Children in Need qualify if they meet through assessment Tier 2.5-3 on the Safeguarding Continuum of Need and Intervention. The service has a specialist Court Team but at times East and West practitioners will also hold care proceeding cases and work with children & families where the PLO framework has been initiated.


  • Conducting assessments to identify the needs and risks faced by children and families.
  • Developing and implementing care plans to address identified needs and promote positive outcomes.
  • Providing direct support and intervention to children and families, including advocacy and practical assistance.
  • Collaborating with multi-disciplinary teams and external agencies to coordinate services and support.
  • Monitoring and reviewing the progress of cases to ensure effective intervention and positive outcomes.

Why use Sheldon Phillips to find your next role? It's simple really - we aren't pushy or too needy.....we know that what you want is to be listened to! You want an agency that will proactively look for what you want to do, rather than us focussing on the roles that will benefit us financially.

That's why we have been so successful, because this is YOUR job search, not ours.
