Our Children's Services is rated by Ofsted as Outstanding. This is an incredible achievement and something we are extremely proud of as it reflects the quality of social work practice we deliver to the children, young people and families we support across the County.

Our South Kesteven Fast Team based at Grange House in Grantham is close to the A1 corridor and only 26 miles from Nottingham. We are a friendly, enthusiastic team with plenty of supported learning opportunities for those who wish to grow their careers.

As a Practice Supervisor, you’ll manage, guide and supervise a small team of social workers, providing primary assessment, support and advice. You’ll work with both children and young people within Child in Need, Child Protection, Children in Care and Care Proceedings to ensure that they are safeguarded at all times. This is an exciting opportunity to have real input in to the efficient and effective delivery of social care in a nationally leading local authority.

We believe that supporting emotional resilience is always important, but particularly so when you are working with the most complex and challenging of cases.  We will provide you with a good work/life balance and flexibility, regular formal as well as informal supervision, monthly group learning and team meetings and access to emotional wellbeing support/counselling.  You will be further supported in your work through our excellent training and learning offer and complimentary access to the Research in Practice platform.

Our practice model is Signs of Safety and this is underpinned by a commitment to restorative practice, meaning that you will practice in a way where the strengths of the family and their network are honoured, where families are encouraged to develop their own solutions and where plans are child centred with the voice of the child being at the heart.

We offer a competitive salary £39,880 - £44,863 and we'll also pay for your annual SWE registration.
