Compass Associates are working closely with a reputable independent fostering agency to recruit an immediately available Supervising Social Worker to join their established team in Somerset. As a company that continues to expand rapidly, our client requires a motivated and organised professional with experience in training others and developing relationships with foster carers. Working with around ten carers, the perfect candidate will be required to travel around the North East Somerset and West Wiltshire areas monitoring a varied caseload. This position is commutable from Warminster, Bath, Wells, Trowbridge and Frome.

The Candidate
A successful candidate will be a passionate, independent individual, capable of co-ordinating foster carers and handling a sizeable caseload. Our client is seeking a driven Supervising Social Worker who can prove to be a crucial asset to the existing fostering team and, at times, act as a panel member. The role itself involves an 'out of hours' rota and any potential candidates will also need to be able to work from home when required. All potential candidates must hold a full clean driver's license and provide their own car.

Criteria
** A degree in Social Work, DipSW or equivalent qualification
** HCPC Registered
** Experience in fostering social work or child social care
