Adoption Social Worker/Senior Social Worker – closing date 29 July 2020

PACT is a supportive and respectful place where people are genuinely passionate about delivering positive outcomes for children and their families.

We work with a high degree of flexibility and innovation and work with a range of adopters from all backgrounds, including those from black and minority ethnic heritage and the LGBT community.

Our adoption teams focus solely on adoption and recruiting adoptive parents who can consider fostering to adopt and adopting a wide-range of children including those over four years old, sibling groups of two or more children, children with a black or minority ethnic background and children who may have physical or learning disabilities. With access to our award-winning therapeutic services, we are unique in that we are able to provide excellent lifetime support for our families’ adoption journeys.

With your social work experience with children and families, you will be responsible for all aspects of work with our valued applicants from the early stages of recruitment, initial interview, preparation and training, through to successful placement and post placement support up to the making of the adoption order. An interest, or experience, in delivering training to prospective or approved adopters would be an advantage.
