We are currently searching for a qualified and committed Social Worker to join a Schools team in Children's Services for a Local Authority in South West London. This is a full-time role offering up to £38.50ph.
As a Social Worker in a Schools team, you will be responsible for providing a high quality, strengths-based social work service to children and young people, their families and carers.

To be successful in this role, you must be a qualified social worker with registration to Social Work England. You should have a sound knowledge of safeguarding and child protection processes and be confident in chairing and attending professional meetings. You must also have the ability to work collaboratively with other agencies and authorities to ensure the best outcomes for the children and young people in the Local Authority's care.

In return, you will be provided with a supportive and friendly working environment and the opportunity to work with a passionate team of professionals. You will be supported in your professional development and have access to regular supervision and training. You will also benefit from flexible working hours, as well as a generous annual leave entitlement.
If you have the necessary skills and experience, and would like to join a passionate team of professionals in making a positive difference in the lives of children and young people, then we would love to hear from you.
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.
