Calling all Social Workers - join our team!

Updated: Apr 25, 2023

We are looking for someone who wants the very best for children to take a lead in ensuring that children’s rights are upheld for all of the children and young people who live with us.


The Role

Place of work: Wirral, Merseyside

Salary band: £38,000-£40,000

Job terms: Part-time, permanent


Providing excellent care for children and safeguarding them can involve working with, and at times, challenging, the structures, systems and policies that are having an impact on young people. Juno's Children’s Rights Social Worker will have the mandate to uphold Children’s Rights both within our homes and outside of them.


Within the home, you will work with our Registered Manager and Social Care Practitioners to:

  • Help to explore trauma bonds and address emotional dependence in harmful relationships

  • Promote and support time with friends and important people in children’s lives

  • Lead Social Prescribing work that supports emotional health and wellbeing

  • Teach self-advocacy and help children to access self-advocacy software


Outside of the homes, you will work systemically and contextually to uphold Children’s rights, and your tasks will include:

  • Liaising with Local Authority social workers to agree on parameters for this work

  • Supporting children may who wish to change their time arrangements

  • Disrupting exploitation and challenging other agencies on failed responses

  • Providing Appropriate Adult support for children in custody and monitoring activity in relation to PACE guidance

  • Supporting and nurturing links with post-18 services


You will eventually work across three children’s homes, each with a maximum of 4 children in residence, so your caseload will never be higher than 12.


Your 18 hours of work can be divided over 3 days, with at least 50% of the hours worked after school (15:30 onwards). You will be paid for mealtimes spent with children.


You will receive training, coaching and consultation from experts in their field and will be supervised by our Director of Care, who is a Registered Social Worker with 44 years of experience.
