Family Support Duty Practitioner 

Salary range: £33,459 - £37,650


Family Support is an independent organisation providing services to the local authority, London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.  Our independence allows us to be agile in the way we deliver our service and requires that our staff are agile and flexible. We are currently looking for a Family Support Duty Practitioner, to provide a first-class service, supporting our Managing Director in his endeavours to ensure all children and families in Hammersmith are supported to achieve the best outcomes.

The successful candidate will report to the Director of Operations

Cases are sent to Family Support and are then allocated to named Family Support Practitioners.  This process often involves cases being managed centrally for a period until a Practitioner becomes available.  The Duty Practitioner role is to safely manage and prioritise these cases and then allocate to an appropriate named Practitioner as soon as possible.

You will be an experienced practitioner with an excellent grounding in safeguarding.  You will be contacting families and assessing need and risk.  You will be liaising with practitioner Teams and partner agencies.  But most of all you will be able to focus on the needs of families.  Experience of systemic practice and Signs of Safety would be beneficial and use of Mosaic as a case file recording system would be a distinct advantage. Experience working as part of a multi-agency team and network

This role requires an individual who is proactive, who can work independently and as part of a team. You will come into contact with our community and our families and so the ability to communicate to and across a spectrum of individuals is very important.

Together we have an ambitious plan to deliver more responsive and impactful early intervention that works in partnership with other organisations, the community and families.  We want to see life chances enhanced and over ten years the cost (both human and financial) of failure reduced.  We need proactive staff who are up for a challenge, willing to take responsibility and who share and want to be a part of our vision. 

If you have the experience, drive and appropriate essential requirements, please do apply.
