The Children's Society has been helping children and young people in this country for over 130 years. We run local services that support children when they are at their most vulnerable and in desperate need of help. We're there for children, every step of the way.

This role sits within our children and families directorate, which works to provide immediate one-to-one and group support for children who urgently need support. Your role will be to help us maintain and develop innovative practice to support our work in our services around the country.

We are currently looking for an experienced worker to join our dynamic, ambitious team.

A key part of this role will be your ability to take specific responsibility for direct work with referred children and young people and manage a caseload.


In order to be successful in this role, you must have:

-Ability to communicate with a wide range of children and young people, families, colleagues and partner agencies

-Ability to work on own initiative and to reflect on own practice and performance

-Substantial experience of working directly with children and young people promoting their rights and advocating on their behalf

-A relevant qualification e.g. Diploma in Social Work, Youth and Community certificate, or extensive experience in working with children and young people in a similar setting.



The Children's Society runs over 100 local services that help thousands of young people who desperately need our support, and we campaign to get laws and policies changed to make children's lives happier and safer.

Every day we're changing the lives of children in this country for the better - and with your help, tomorrow we can be there for even more.

The Children's Society is committed to safeguarding and protecting the children and young people that we work with. As such, all posts are subject to a safer recruitment process, including the disclosure of criminal records and vetting checks. We ensure that we have a range of policies and procedures in place which promote safeguarding and safer working practices across our services.
