Social Worker Job description

An exciting opportunity has arisen for 3.5 social workers to join the Through Care Service.

The Through Care Service supports children and young people aged 0-25 and their families, through their journey in care and as care leavers.

There are three units, each with three teams, two with a focus on children in care and one with a focus on care leavers.

The children in care teams have a practice lead, six social worker, a family support worker and a unit coordinator.

We are based at B Bond in an open plan office overlooking the river and Ashton Court. We have high aspirations for our children and young people and are committed to providing services to achieve the best possible outcomes.

You will work with around 17 children in a co-productive approach with the children, professionals, families and carers to support them to have the best opportunities.

You will keep up to date records which will help your children understand their journey into and through care.

You will ensure that they have the networks to support them during childhood and into adulthood and write care and pathway plans that are aspirational and meet need in a timely way.

You will work with children who are being cared for in foster homes (including kinship), children’s homes and children in semi-independent accommodation (children live mostly in and around Bristol, but also further afield).

The work can be reactive and fast paced and you will need to be trauma informed and creative in response.

The role is diverse, and you will need the ability to work on your own, support the multi-agency network to hold risk, chair meetings relating to your children and have the skills to challenge constructively.

We will support you through the career progression pathway and you will have opportunities to become involved in projects and areas of interest to support this.

In Through Care we recognise the importance of the child’s whole network in building security and safety. We believe coming into care is an extension of the network our children already have, and a large piece of our work is to support and maintain this.

We are creative in our approach to be certain we meet the needs of our children. Our practice is underpinned by signs of safety and we encourage a systemic and reflective approach.

‘you cannot underestimate how important you [social worker] are to a child in care and the difference you can really make’

‘it is an absolute privilege to be involved in the life of a child a care and walk with them on their care journey’.

If you share this passion and commitment, we would love to hear from you.

Please note that this role is subject to an Enhanced DBS Check.
