job description

Do you have experience of managing and effectively supporting a team of Social Workers? Would the prospect of working for 6 months in a popular Scottish tourist town grab your interest? I'm currently recruiting for a locum Team Manager to join a busy Adult Services Social Work team in the Oban area of Argyll & Bute. This contract is expected to be for a minimum of 3 months however it could potentially stretch as far as 6 months. Hourly rates are attractive, coming in at £34-£38 per hour. While you will be based in Oban, your remit will cover a wider locality including some of the Islands. You must be a car driver to be considered for this role due the isolated locations that you may be required to travel to.

An applicant is likely to be seen as attractive if you have experience in, or are comfortable with, the following duties and responsibilities;

* The management of a team of Social Workers, OTs and Social Work Assistants.
* Providing regular supervision meetings to members of the team.
* Implementing new, and strengthening existing, team structures.
* Providing insight and advice to team members in relations to cases while making crucial final decisions.

In order to be considered for this post, any applicant should be confident in meeting the below criteria before applying;

* Be SSSC registered.
* Hold a relevant Social Work qualification.
* Be a PVG scheme member.
* Be a Car Driver.
* Have a minimum of 6 months managerial experience within a statutory Social Work setting.

There's more to agency contracts than just work! As a Randstad locum, you would be entitled to the following great benefits;

* The support from a dedicated 1-2-1 specialist consultant that's committed to guiding you through the next steps in your career
* Flexible working hours
* A prompt and reliable payroll service
* Free annual PVG updates
* An outstanding referral scheme, which gives you the opportunity to pocket £300 per successful referral
* Access to the exclusive discount app just for Randstad contractors

If you're a dedicated Social Worker with a passion for care, then I want to speak with you! To submit your interest, please apply to this advert or contact Chris Tervit on or 0131 240 0887 to discuss this opportunity in more detail.
