Job description

Assistant Team Manager
Full time, permanent appointment 

Based in Pimlico, London 

Salary in the range £38,685 - £46,549 inclusive of London weighting 


Are you driven to deliver the best outcomes for children and families?  Would you like to join an outstanding voluntary adoption agency as an Assistant Team Manager?    


PACT helps hundreds of families every year through outstanding adoption services and award-winning therapeutic support and inspirational community projects across London and the south of England.  
This is a new role in our London adoption team.  Our adoption teams focus solely on adoption and recruiting adoptive parents who can consider fostering to adopt and adopting a wide-range of children.  


Working closely with the London Adoption Team Manager you will provide support and supervision to a team of dedicated and experienced social workers.  This will include managing workloads across the team as well as coaching and supervising team members to ensure that the highest standards of quality and professional practice are achieved and maintained and they reach their full potential.   


You’ll lead team discussions and workshops to share learning and best practice and keep the team updated on practice developments and service improvements.   In addition, you will carry your own caseload and deputise for the Team Manager as needed.

You should be a qualified registered social worker, with at least 3 years’ child social care experience including adoption experience.  Skilled at undertaking more complex assessments, your own standards of practice will be consistently high and you will work with the child at the centre of all that you do.

With excellent communication skills, you’ll be a confident networker, able to build successful working relationships within your own team, across the service and with external professionals.
  
This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who is keen to move into management and you will have access to learning and professional development opportunities. 
As you will be working with families and colleagues across a geographical area, you must be able to travel and work flexibly as needed. 


Interested? If you would like to join an inspirational organisation where you can make a real difference to children and families, further information and details of how to apply can be found on our website.

We look forward to hearing from you!
