Specific Role Information

We are a countywide service but this post will be predominately covering work in the South of the county. We see this post as both challenging and exciting, enabling you as a social worker to be based within the Safe Guarding and Specialist Disabled Children's Services Mercian Close Ilkeston alongside other experienced Social workers, Community Care Workers and Children's Occupational Therapists. The team is co- located in the building with the Erewash Locality services. Due to our service covering the whole county there will also be the opportunity to work out of our North base, Chesterfield Royal Hospital Derbyshire, with our other fieldwork team. There will be opportunities to work in a person centred way that compliments systemic therapy and the stronger family's safer children agenda. You will cover and support duty, undertake child protection work, children in care work and high level child in need.


This position needs you to liaise closely with Health and Education colleagues and will enable you to develop many other worthwhile skills to add to your CV. You will be supported by an experienced management team who are committed to good support, advice, supervision and a nurturing team ethos. We are committed to capturing the child's voice and journey through our work with a 'children first' approach which incorporates the social model of disability, social inclusion principles, anti-oppressive practice and person centred ways.


Due to this post having access to children and/or vulnerable adults, candidates will be required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service check. The possession of a criminal record will not necessarily prevent an applicant from obtaining this post, as all cases are judged individually according to the nature of the role and information provided.
