Summary:

GLF are an Independent Fostering Agency with a genuine commitment for placing children at the heart of all we do. We were recently rated “Good” by Ofsted who commented that “Children receive care from a well-run, highly effective agency. Foster carers, staff and management express pride in their sense of community. Children benefit from nurturing, life enriching placements, which build resilience, confidence and their self-esteem”.

We are currently recruiting for a dynamic and proactive Supervising Social Worker to support and guide allocated Foster
Carers across South London.

Ideally you will have previous fostering experience which combined with your excellent communication skills will prove invaluable in striving to ensure we achieve positive outcomes for the children in our care. If you want to make a difference, and are prepared to “go the extra mile” then GLF could be the next step in your career progression. A self-motivator, with the excellent organisational ability, you will become a part of the GLF community committed to taking a hands-on and proactive approach in improving and coordinating fostering services.
This role will be based in our new South London resource centre and will require flexibility around both travel and working hours.

The independent fostering sector is one the most exciting and fast-moving areas of social work and one where your direct work with children can improve the lives of children in care.
In return for your commitment and proven competency within the children’s services arena we offer a competitive salary, good working conditions and a genuine opportunity to do the work that you came into social work to do.

GLF are a progressive organisation who aim to set the benchmark in social work standards. If you share our ethos and values in meeting the needs of children and want to make a difference, then we want you to hear from you.
