An exciting opportunity has arisen at the NSPCC Service Centre in Croydon for an enthusiastic and dynamic social worker to join the team.

The NSPCC Croydon is currently delivering services with a range of service users. The successful candidate would develop skills and experience working these populations.

The services we are currently delivering are;

  • Letting the Future In
  • Child Sexual Abuse Assessment and Support
  • Protect and Respect
  • Return Home Interview
  • London Infant and Family Team

This service aims to safeguard children by assessing the risks of Neglect and HSB interventions to address the concerns.

We are looking for:

A social worker with the ability to plan and deliver appropriate programmes of work with individuals, families and groups, the ability to identify risk and have experience of child protection intervention as well as up to date knowledge of legislation, research and best practice; and the ability to evaluate the effectiveness of their own practice.

This is an exciting time for the NSPCC, with staff at all levels engaging in a range of new projects and developments. You will have a manageable caseload, excellent training and development opportunities.

This is your opportunity to contribute to service development not only in terms of direct work but also be able to get involved in evaluation, influencing and dissemination of learning and have the opportunity to be part of an exciting new strategy to help end cruelty to children.

Interviews will be held the week of the 16th of July 2018 and a young person's panel will be held the week of the 23rd of July 2018.

For an informal discussion please contact: Katherine Giles, 0208 253 1850
