Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children (UASC) Social Worker

Croydon, UK

JOB TYPE: Contract, Temporary

SALARY: £35.00/hour

My client urgently requires a HCPC registered social worker to work in an Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children (UASC) service.

Suitable candidates must be on the HCPC and have extensive post qualification experience in a similar team to be shortlisted.

We will be interested to hear from social workers experienced in working with young people in care seeking asylum and can demonstrate their knowledge and skill when working with and supporting them. Additional experience in the identification and assessment of criminal and sexual exploitation trafficking and modern slavery will also be an advantage.

- The UASC teams support and care for 280 children and young people

- The social worker will be responsible for a caseload of 16 children and young people in our care living here, other London Boroughs and occasionally further afield

- Our children are seeking asylum. The majority are teenagers when they first become looked after and mostly male

- Our duty to them is the same as for any child or young person in care, but with the added dimension of a different set of experiences and journey

- There are 4 teams, one of which is responsible for a smaller number of children but carries out age assessments when age is disputed

- Each team is in turn responsible for the duty service, which includes our own “front door” service, where we respond to children who have presented at the home office
