Context and Purpose of the Job:

  • To provide a friendly, helpful and effective response to local authority staff wishing to place children with the agency and to contribute to the overall objectives of the referrals, assessment and placements team (RAPT).
  • To provide a friendly, helpful and effective response to potential foster carers and to contribute to the overall objectives of the recruitment, assessment and placements team.

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 in our Stratford Office and will require flexibility around both travel and working hours.

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.
