Do you want to make a difference to the lives of Middlesbrough children?

Children who for a multitude of reasons are at risk of being cared for outside of their family home if they don’t receive support.

Then working within our brand new Futures for Families Team could be for you.

At Middlesbrough Council we want to stop families from failing, we want to keep homes safe and most of all enable children to have a future that is not limited by circumstance.

We are seeking to recruit a brand new care team who will work directly with those families who are in need, from within a purpose built residential setting.

Whatever your background, if you are tenacious, devoted, direct, if you want to be challenged, and are simply compelled to help others then we want to hear from you today!

The DfE have invested over £84 million over five years to support up to twenty Local Authorities to improve their work with families and safely reduce the number of children entering care.  Middlesbrough is one of the local authorities who will be benefitting, by working with North Yorkshire to implement its No Wrong Door Model, under the name Futures for Families.

The Futures for Families team will provide a rapid response to children and families in crisis, enabling them to address and overcome the difficulties that have led to the family being at risk of breakdown, and prevent further escalation and referral to care proceedings.

For the Senior and Resource workers, you will also need to be able to work unsocial hours i.e. early mornings, weekend’s sleep-ins, night shift as well as school holidays, evenings and Bank holidays. Additional allowances will be paid for sleeping in (£81 per sleep in) and Sunday working.
