Be at the Heart of Social Work for Children We Look After

The Children We Look After know what they want from those of us who have the privilege to work for them. We have all signed up to a Promise to deliver the best that we can alongside our children and their carers. This includes offering the best support and holding the highest aspirations for them all.

We currently have an opening for a Team Manager to join us, working with our great social workers and for our young people to enable them to achieve.

This is a great time to join the team as we continue to grow as a service, progressing well and offering fantastic opportunities for the right person to grow their career. Our managers work closely with all our partners and share mutual expectations of trust and reliability.

At St Helens Council we are committed to working as a close knit and integrated team to deliver the best outcomes for our children. This is an exciting time to join us and have the opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of Children We Look After.

Your qualification, continued professional development and experiences will complement the management team in St Helens who in turn will offer you support, the opportunity for further development and the chance to further improve outcomes for our children.

You will receive regular supervision and frequent opportunities to be involved in activities both internal and external to the Borough.
