: Job Details An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Team Manager in the Leaving Care Team based at Triangle House in Palmers Green Enfield. This is a busy team which consists of three team managers who are managed by the Service manager for LAC and LCT. The managers supervise group of Personal Advisors, Social workers and Advanced Social Work practitioners. Enfield is a diverse borough which is mirrored by the young people we work; the team is responsible for managing the care plans of young people aged 16 to 25 who are eligible for Services under the leaving Care Act. Many of our young people have had traumatic life experiences such as coming to the UK as Unaccompanied minors, have experience of abuse and exploitation as well as criminal activity in some cases. The Team manager's role is to ensure that care plans have ambition for young people and that they are supported to make a successful transition to adult hood. One of our objectives is to ensure that young people are encouraged to engage in employment, training or education and we work alongside a number of partner agencies to support young people to overcome any barriers to this. We are looking for a candidate who is enthusiastic and is eager to accept both the challenge and the rewards of working with our young people to support them to make positive choices and improve their life chances. The successful candidate will have a clear understanding of working with this client group and of managing in a statutory setting. The recruitment system will have some scheduled maintenance on Friday 14 TH October 2016 between 21:00 and 23:45 (BST) and therefore may show as unavailable. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
