  • 35,745 – 42,403 £ / Year

Oxfordshire County Council

We are excited to invite applications for Newly Qualified Social Workers to begin their Assessed and Supported Year in Employment (ASYE) in our Social Work Professional Development Centre.

Main duties of the job

The role of a children’s social worker can be challenging but is also a privilege and hugely rewarding. We know that the right support in your first year of practice will equip you with the skills you need to flourish in your career.

We are seeking newly qualified social workers to join a variety of teams across Childrens Social Care for the Assessed and Supported Year (ASYE) programme.

We want to provide you with a thoughtful, scaffolded learning experience for your Assessed and Supported Year in Employment, in which all those new to practice feel safe and well supported throughout, with a protected caseload and gradual increase in the time spent with our teams as your practice develops.

The Social Work Professional Development Centre will treat each NQSW as an individual, with a development plan based on individual learning needs and regular progress reviews, which will enable us to ensure that everyone has the best possible learning experience, tailored to their individual needs. We’ve designed our own competency framework for our NQSW’s development, which is aligned with Oxfordshire County Councils guiding principles for strengths-based practice.

About us

We have created the Social Work Professional Development Centre because we know that nurturing and supporting our NQSWs to become great practitioners is crucial in developing a strong and stable workforce and delivering outstanding services to the children and families of Oxfordshire.

If you join Oxfordshire County Council you will be joining a strengths-based service that is focused on supporting families to keep their children safe and to make lasting change. We do this by keeping relationship-based practice at the core of everything we do and using motivational interviewing to engage families.
