We currently need a Senior Social Worker to work in a Children's Assessment Team in Norfolk.
The Assessment and Action Team, undertakes up to 45 day assessments of section 17, section 47 cases. The turnover of cases is high and caseloads are averaging around 20 - 25 cases. The Assessment and Action Team will take cases to Initial Child Protection Conference and to Court if necessary. The work is very varied with undertaking single assessments, initial child in care processes and also initial Court work.
In this Assessment and Action Team as a Senior Social Worker you will work very closely with The MASH and will attend any strategy discussions held. There is a duty system within The Assessment and Action Team which means that a social worker will be on a duty rota and expected to deal with duty matters from The MASH and within The Assessment and Action team.
