How Action for Children works

Action for Children does what's right, does what's needed and does what works for children across the UK. Every year, our team changes the lives of 301,000 children, young people and their families – but for every child who needs help to get help, there's plenty more to do. That's where you come in.


The role

Our Adoption and Permanency South West service recruits, trains and assesses prospective adoptive parents and supports them through the placement of the children until the making of an option order. As our service expands we have identified the need for a Social Work Assistant. This is a new role for our team and you would assist in the development of this role as well as playing an integral role in our service.


The difference

You'll significantly improve young people's lives:

By supporting all aspects of adoption social work

By being the first point of contact for prospective adopters, providing them with information about and supporting them through the process

By helping to run information sessions

By conducting initial assessments of suitability

By working as part of a team, yet having the ability to work on your own initiative as required.


The person

You'll need:

  • Excellent communication skills at all levels by phone, email and face-to-face.
  • Good IT skills
  • A proactive, can-do attitude and willingness to help.
  • A flexible approach, the ability to work to deadlines and manage changing priorities at short notice.
  • Good organisation skills.
  • A sensitive and calm approach.
  • The ability to maintain confidentiality, understand safeguarding responsibilities and act with discretion.


The rewards

  • Minimum 29 days' holiday (pro rata)
  • Flexible working, including maternity, paternity and adoption packages
  • Season ticket travel loans
  • Company pension scheme
  • Discounts at major high street retailers.

Plus, there's a lot more besides.


This is a fantastic opportunity to make a real difference to vulnerable children's lives and to build a fulfilling and meaningful career with a leading UK children's charity.


Action for Children is committed to safer recruitment practices, designed to protect the welfare of the children and young people using our services.


If you meet all the criteria and would like to proceed with your application, you'll be redirected to an application form on our website which should only take around 5 minutes to complete. Please have your CV handy to upload. As this job involves working around children, there are some specific questions we need to ask you as part of your application process. Thanks for taking the time to apply and we wish you the best of luck!
