We are looking for an ambitious team manager to join Ealing Council.
We are looking to recruit a team manager who is up for change at our front door. This is an exciting opportunity to build a new intervention team. We are changing our approach from assessment to short term intervention, where we can offer effective support to children and their families. You and your team will work closely with the ECIRS (Ealing Childrens Integrated Response Service)/MASH. You will manage a team of one deputy team manager, 10 social workers and one family practitioner. You will work with the head of service in the development, delivery, and review of the new Intervention Team.
Ealing is committed to new ways of working and supporting staff to embed our Practice Model... The Brighter Futures Practice Model is values driven and has at its heart a commitment to improving the lives and outcomes for children and young people in need through building empathic, respectful, and trusting relationships with children, young people, their families, or carers (and with each other as colleagues) to achieve improved and sustainable outcomes that support long term change.
There is a strong emphasis on monthly case and personal supervision whereby reflection is a prominent feature in line with the Brighter futures model.
The Ealing borough is a diverse multicultural borough and thus there is a strong ethos within the team to imbed cultural awareness and diversity within our daily work and interactions with children and their families. The candidate must be passionate about delivering a family centred service which is child focused, whilst carrying out supportive and safeguarding statutory duties in line with current legation and PAN London guidance.
The candidate will report directly to the head of service. You can expect to receive support from your head of service to help you to grow and develop in the role and determine your management style. Ealing Council has an excellent training program and offers coaching support for managers new to the council.
If you believe you have the required experience, skills, and abilities to exceed in this role, we would like to hear from you.
