We seek an experienced social worker to support our foster carers in the Merseyside area.  Your duties will include being part of the referral system and manage your vacancies, attend all meetings and co-ordinate foster care support groups and carer training.

It is essential that you are up to date with safeguarding and preferable, but not necessary that you have fostering experience.

You can work from home and achieve a good work-life balance with a manageable case load.  You will strive to recruit carers and undertake BAAF F assessments which are presented to our panel in Gloucestershire.  There will be driving involved, and where you need to travel for panel & supervision, approximately monthly, a  hotel will be provided overnight if you require.
