Supervising Social Worker

Hull and East Riding 

We have an exciting opportunity to support the on-going development and growth of the Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire Region of Fusion Fostering.

We are looking to recruit a full time newly qualified Supervising Social Worker, covering Hull and the East Riding. The right candidate will benefit from a small case load, excellent supervision, on going training and development and being part of a very creative and child focused team based in the city centre of Hull.

We require some who is knowledgeable of Fostering Regulations (not desirable if motivated to learn), self-motivated with a passion to drive and maintain standards of care. We need someone that has excellent communication skills and has confidence in their decision making.

We are looking for someone who can assess new Foster Carers and supervise them. This will include being part of a duty rota that covers out of hour’s emergencies. There may be some weekend and evening work also which will be for foster carer training sessions, support groups and activity days.

Qualities that our fostering families and looked after children are looking for are as follows:

  • Someone approachable
  • Someone committed
  • Someone creative
  • Someone available
  • Someone fun
  • Someone who will listen
  • Someone who can help
  • Someone who can challenge and advocate for foster carers and children in placement.

Applicants need to hold a qualification in Social Work and be registered with the HCPC. We also require applicants to be able to drive with a full clean driving licence.

This is an exciting time to join the agency due to the high level of success with our current placements and our growth. We need an individual who can maintain the standards that have been set which are very high.
