Vacancy for Fostering Development Social Worker

We are looking for a dynamic, resourceful and highly motivated social worker to join our developing team in the Eastern region and to grow our foster carer base in the county of Cambridgeshire.

The job holder will be home based, on a part-time basis to begin with, but with the potential to increase to full-time if successful. We are looking for an enthusiastic person who really believes in the benefits of foster care and understands what motivates people to become carers. The job holder will have a good knowledge of the county, will have excellent networking and communication skills, and will work with the support of the team in Suffolk to recruit more foster carers for Cambridgeshire.

We are looking for someone who can work within communities to find creative ways of engaging people in fostering and who can also assess potential carers and see them through the process to become their supervising social worker. We are a close-knit team dedicated to providing a quality service to the children and this role has the potential to be incredibly rewarding-please do call us for an informal chat if you'd like to know more!
