About you


To help achieve this, we want to recruit permanent ATM’s who are experienced and passionate about working towards achieving positive change for children and families.


We are therefore looking for candidates who have ability to:

  • Work individually and manage a team of social workers towards making safe and robust decisions under pressure and strict deadlines
  • Be flexible and deal with changing needs or requests at short notice
  • Work within a relationship and strength-based practice framework
  • Work positively, constructively but with clear focus and direction with a team of social workers, multi-agency partners and other internal teams to identify need, risk and strengths and make appropriate decisions and plans for the child(ren).
  • Work autonomously in a professionally responsible and accountable manner but also able to work collaboratively as part of a wider management team
  • Lead, direct and motivate a team of social workers
  • Deliver high quality supervision and support social workers to continually develop their skills and practice
  • Help contribute to team and service development
  • Be enthusiastic and committed to individual development

Successful candidates will work under the supervision of the SPOC Team manager.

As a Council, we are also committed to providing you with on-going training and development.


This is a full-time, permanent position, open to candidates with both existing managerial experience and advanced or senior social workers looking to move into a management role.
