The Team Manager will be responsible for managing Social Workers and Senior Social Workers located across a number of local authorities in London. The post holder may also be required to hold a small caseload of more complex cases in order to maintain their skills in direct work.

As Team Manager, you will be working in a multi-agency environment managing a geographically dispersed team of social workers based in local authorities, some with delegated authority, dealing with a wide range of cases including complex child protection and court cases. 

Specialist training to build knowledge will be provided.
