As a Senior Practitioner you will play an essential role in modelling good practice to all other front line workers within our Service. You will be undertaking more complex cases and will be key in working with other agencies.

If you are an experienced practitioner who wants recognition for your skills we want to hear from you. We are particularly interested to hear from social workers who want to work in the Court and child protection arena.
