Social Worker in Assessment Team

There are 3 Assessment Teams in Peterborough, which are fast paced, lively and interesting and would ideally suit Social Workers who are proactive and adaptable, and who have a passion for ensuring that Children and Families in our area receive a positive and timely first experience of our service. The Teams complete Section 17 Child and Family Assessments and carry out S47 investigations, with cases transferring at initial Child in Need meeting or Child Protection Conference. The work is immensely rich and varied day to day and allows for a high level of multi-agency working often to tight timelines

We would expect Social Workers to have a keen appreciation of and the ability to meet statutory timescales throughout all of their work, as well as value the importance of developing effective relationships with children and their families.
