We are seeking a dedicated Social Worker for our client in Hackney to provide a high-quality and effective service, addressing the needs of children and families within statutory guidelines. The role involves conducting comprehensive assessments through interviews, observations, and information gathering to formulate clear and accurate evaluations aligned with statutory guidance.

Balancing risk and protective factors within a child protection framework is essential. You will need the ability to provide concise, informative reports based on complex evidence whilst still remain open to reassessment based on new information.

Key responsibilities:


  • Devise intervention plans based on assessed needs in the planning and service delivery domain.
  • Collaborate closely with therapists for clinical interventions, ensuring a comprehensive approach.
  • Work within a flexible framework, managing Child Protection Plans to address children's needs.

  • Engage in direct work with children and families, fostering professional relationships to safeguard children and ensure positive outcomes.


This opportunity calls for a professional who is not only adept at managing workload and statutory responsibilities, but also dedicated to challenging discrimination and promoting equality, making a significant impact on the lives of children and families.
