Health trust in push to recruit social workers

By Staff Reporter

The Belfast Health and Social Care Trust has launched a recruitment drive for social care professionals.

The Family and Child Care Social Work Services in the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust support children and families in sections including family intervention and child protection.

In its first wave of advertisements, the trust is seeking social workers in family and child care.

Successful applicants will "be responsible for managing their allocated case load, undertaking assessment and case planning and also be responsible for the direct discharge of statutory duties in respect of children in need", the advertisement states.

Applications are now open, with interviews scheduled for the week beginning August 20.

A social worker in the family intervention team said the work was "busy and challenging, but brings great hope about what you can achieve with children and their families. The support from your team members and supervision from the team leader are such an important part of the job'.'
