Torbay is now progressing well in its improvement journey and this is an exciting opportunity to work in a beautiful area of the country.

Good social workers are at the heart of everything we do. You will be required to create positive relationships with children, their parents and carers and wider families as well as partners and colleagues, demonstrate sound abilities in risk assessment and planning, mediation, child-centred and restorative practice, negotiation and problem solving.

You will receive good management support with a focus on your professional development, a competitive salary, subsidised parking, the opportunity to be part of continued professional development through Torbay’s Learning Academy, good administrative support and cutting edge technology, to enable you to capture information whilst out in the field and upload onto case management systems automatically.

We would like to invite applications from social workers who want to support our cared for children and the implementation of their permanency plans. Specifically, the post holder will support cared for children across the range of permanency planning, from children with a plan of long term fostering to children with plans of reunification or family placement to children with plans of adoption. This is a great opportunity for a skilled and dynamic social worker with experience in working with cared for children in a wide variety of placement settings. You will be a strong advocate for children, and someone who is passionate and focused about improving the outcomes for cared for children.

We will consider applications for Full and Part time.
