Wirral Council's adoption service is now part of Adoption in Merseyside (AIM), a regional adoption agency, and we are looking to appoint an adoption social worker for the Wirral / Liverpool Area. AIM Adoption is committed to providing timely, high quality services to meet the needs of Children Looked After who need permanence through adoption. This work involves the recruitment and assessment of prospective adopters, providing training and support, family finding for those children with an adoption plan and offering support to families when children are placed pre and post the making of an Adoption Order.
We are looking for an enthusiastic, "bring it on" social worker to join our team and help make a difference to the lives of adopted children and their families. Your caseload will mainly consist of post adoption support which involves assessing families' needs and making plans for intervention, however, you must be willing to work across the range of adoption services.
