To provide a statutory Social Work Service in accordance with the provisions of relevant legislation and national and local guidelines.
To assume case management responsibilities specific to the Service, carrying out assessment of service users needs and risks, following Service procedures and delivering direct interventions to individuals and small groups as part of a programme of interventions. The role will also involve participating in structured consultation/supervision sessions and representing the Social Work Service in multi-disciplinary forums. This will all be in accordance with Council or hosted stakeholders arrangements, through a Service Level Agreement or Partnership arrangement.
As part of our alignment to the Promise, Clackmannanshire Council are committed to ensuring that our children and young people are at the heart of and connected to their local communities. As such, we are developing services to ensure that children are, wherever possible, cared for by those closest to them.
One such development is our support for kinship care and we are looking for a social worker to champion and lead on support and assessment of kinship carers. We are looking for a qualified social worker to join our team. The main role will be to assess prospective kinship carers regarding their ability to care for specific children into adulthood, present assessments at our kinship care panel and provide ongoing support, guidance and training to kinship carers. The successful candidate would have a strong commitment to relationship based practice and an understanding of the impact of trauma on children and young people. While experience in assessing and supporting carers would be desirable, it is not essential as full training will be given. There will also be a high level of ongoing supervision and development to the successful candidate. The role will involve a high degree of co-working with colleagues in other parts of the service.
