About the role

Are you an experienced social worker with a passion for developing, writing and delivering high quality training materials? We are looking for a colleague to contribute to the development and delivering of up to date, challenging and engaging training and events. This is an exciting opportunity to make a meaningful impact on practice improvement in the family placement and permanency sector.

The main focus of this role will be on the development of training materials, but you will also have the opportunity to deliver a limited number of training courses in your area of expertise. To complement the skill base in our team we would particularly welcome applicants with experience of working in kinship and/or fostering, as well as those with experience in adoption assessments and/or permanency planning.

We are a small but dedicated, mainly remote-working team. We pride ourselves on working as collaboratively as possible, while also recognising our individual areas of expertise and responsibility. Our service runs monthly 'Wellbeing for Members' sessions for our members and as a team we strive to practice what we preach.
