Elevate your career to new heights by leading a dedicated team of social workers within the Child Protection Service of a respected Local Authority in South West London. This pivotal role offers a competitive remuneration of up to £44.50 per hour and the chance to make a significant impact on the lives of children and families in need.

As the Social Work Team Manager, you will be at the forefront of safeguarding the welfare of children by steering your team through complex cases with compassion, expertise, and a commitment to excellence. This position not only allows you to utilise your extensive knowledge and experience in child protection but also to nurture and develop the skills of your team, ensuring the highest standards of practice are maintained.

Candidates must be registered with Social Work England and possess a robust understanding of the legislative framework pertaining to children's services. A proven track record in managing social work professionals and delivering positive outcomes in a child protection setting is essential. The role demands strong leadership qualities, excellent decision-making skills, and the ability to foster a supportive and collaborative environment.

In return, you will receive the support necessary to thrive in your role, including access to ongoing professional development and the opportunity to work alongside a network of experienced practitioners. Your dedication to the field will be rewarded with a role that not only challenges and develops your professional capabilities but also offers a sense of fulfilment that comes from making a tangible difference in the community.

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.
