The Service is divided into two areas, East and West. The East office is based in Ty Trevithick, Abercynon and the West office is based in Tonypandy, Rhondda.
We expect our practitioners to have a sound understanding of the practice implications of the Children Act, the Social Services and Wellbeing Act and other relevant legislation, be up to date with emerging issues and have experience of or an interest in working within childcare. Committed to anti-oppressive practice, successful candidates will bring strong assessment, communication, and planning skills.
Those starting a Social Work career will also be supported to attend out First Year in Practice peer support programme which aims to bridge the gap between qualifying and consolidating practice.
We will look to you to manage a defined caseload while building and maintaining links with partner agencies. You must possess a professional recognised Social Work qualification and be expected to be registered as a ‘Social Worker’ with Social Care Wales on appointment.
