An ambitious Fostering Manager is required to make their mark on our client's fostering services, managing significant investment to deliver the highest quality services for children, young people and foster carers.

The Role

Our client is an ambitious council with a highly-regarded and supportive leadership team. Having secured a significant investment to support the recruitment and development of foster carers and drive positive outcomes for children and young people in foster care, they are now seeking an experienced Fostering Manager to lead their fostering services and maximise the social return on this investment.

The Fostering Manager will be responsible for the recruitment and development of foster carers - with all generic, family and friends, and SGO social work being undertaken and carried out by other teams, the successful candidate will be able to focus 100% on pure "end-to-end" fostering.

Candidates

To be successful you will need to be a qualified social worker, experienced in complex social work with children and families, with strong communication and leadership skills, and demonstrable experience of delivering a high quality service with positive outcomes.

You will have experience of working within fostering and will need to be able to demonstrate not only knowledge and experience in this area of work, particularly working with foster carers post-approval, but also the ability to work effectively with all stakeholders and partners.
