Job Title:  Fostering Social Worker  (Family and Friends Assessment Team) x 2

Role:  This is an excellent opportunity for up to 2 Qualified Social Workers to join Staffordshire’s Kinship and Fostering Service on an agency basis.

The post holders will contribute flexibly to Staffordshire’s Kinship Care Service in the assessment of kinship carers. The post holders will undertake the completion of viability assessments and full connected persons assessments to ensure  children and young are restoratively supported and cared for in a way that ensures the young person achieves positive outcomes and where possible is able to remain living within their family. The post holders will work directly with a range of multi-agency professionals to coordinate the long and short-term family-based needs of children and young people and their kinship carers. Staffordshire has a longstanding record of innovative practice over many years that provides high quality assessment and support to kinship carers and to the children living with them.  We are determined that all children in Staffordshire enjoy good outcomes and have undertaken a significant investment and commitment to ensure this continues through the introduction of Restorative Practice. This will have a transformational impact on our culture and professional practice to ensure children and their families remain at the heart of all we do. We would like you to be part of this journey.
