Bridgend County Borough Council offers a great opportunity for you to further your social care career. We want the best people to join us - this is what our children and families deserve.

We are a reflective organisation that continuously builds on its strengths and is committed to the principle that the most effective way of improving outcomes for all Children, Young People and Families is through the provision of accessible, universal services. Join us and you will work in a rewarding environment where staff are valued and can access development opportunities.

In addition to our Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub, we have targeted family support services which are co-located with our safeguarding hubs, to provide a continuum of services ranging from early help to intensive provision to families with complex needs. Our Safeguarding teams are located in three community based hubs around the borough. We also have teams who offer expertise in relation to Children with Disabilities, Young People aged 16+ who are entitled to leaving care services and fostering services.

We have remodelled our residential services to ensure there are a range of pathways for children and young people including care leavers. Alongside this, there has been a review of our existing fostering service and some new and innovative approaches to recruit, develop and support foster carer households.

The Independent Reviewing Service Manager will lead and manage a team of Independent Reviewing Officers, providing supervision, leadership, motivation and direction. You will participate in the monitoring of performance across Children's Social Care services, ensuring that the Reviewing Service are involved in Quality Assurance and audit activity and service user consultation processes.
