We are looking to recruit a fostering supervising social worker on the Isle of Wight
GLF needs a new supervising social worker to look after our growing group of foster carers on the island, and the surrounding areas.
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 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 at home, but you will be expected to travel to our main office in London frequently..
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, excellent benefits, good working conditions and a genuine opportunity to do the work that you came into social work to do.
GLF are an Independent Fostering Agency with a genuine commitment for placing children at the heart of all we do. During our last Ofsted visit, it was 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 a progressive organisation who aims 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.
