  • Full time
  • £37,522 – £47,266
  • Edinburgh and Lothians
  • Closing 12th December 2022

At the NSPCC, we’re leading the fight against child abuse in the UK and Channel Islands. We believe that every childhood is worth fighting for. Which is why we’re working harder than ever to protect children at risk, help children who have been abused to rebuild their lives, and find the best ways of preventing child abuse from ever happening.

We work directly with children and families either in their homes or at our local Hubs across the UK and Channel Islands. Our local services are an essential part of how our three impact goals will be delivered:

  • Everyone plays their part to prevent child abuse
  • Every child is safe online
  • Children feel safe, listened to and are supported

As part of this, we are excited to establish an NSPCC presence in every nation and English region. However, our work will not be limited to these towns and cities. This new network instead enables us to embed ourselves in every community.

An integral part of the NSPCC current strategy is the delivery of innovative, pioneering, evidence-based practice across the safeguarding agenda. Our Team Managers make a vital contribution to our strategy through the delivery of high-quality services they lead.

We are looking for a dynamic and experienced Social Worker with excellent communication skills, experience of supporting and developing staff within the safeguarding field as well as skills, knowledge and passion to drive improved outcomes for Children and Families.

As Team Manager you will lead the local team, manage, and shape new innovative services within the themes of Sexual Abuse and Prevention, in line with the NSPCC current strategy. You will be an integral part of the management team and will be responsible for the line management of social workers /and non-qualified staff, delivering front line services within neighbouring local authority areas.

You will need and demonstrate motivation to improve the quality of the work provided by the team, have some experience of delivering supervision that supports good practice that promotes positive values and behaviours and expertise in the field of safeguarding.

In addition, we always seek to share our learning to spread the reach and impact of our work. Therefore, in this role as Team Manager you will need to have a positive and flexible approach to influencing change and innovation.

If you are looking for a new challenge, passionate about making a real difference to the lives of children and young people then we would love to hear from you!

The NSPCC can offer the right candidate with the potential to grow and develop, fantastic learning opportunities, an improved work / life balance and the experience of working in a well-established charity that sets high standards and expectation on improving the lives of children. The successful candidate will have access to a Team Manager Development Programme alongside service specific training

Take a look at the following testimonials from staff across services who have recently joined the NSPCC.

‘I joined the NSPCC for the opportunity to manage a team that carries out focused, child centred and meaningful practice. We get to know families better and empower them to make the changes. Since joining the NSPCC, I have found a better work life balance, the chance to learn about the work that we do and the space to achieve truly reflective supervision and practice. I have felt supported in my role by my line manager, listened to about my views and expected to use my experiences in my role to lead the team. The training I have received has been of the highest standard.

The best thing is managing a team of people who genuinely enjoy coming to work and do the job they do’. Team Manager – North-West Hub

‘I joined the NSPCC to be part of a service that provides a safe, honest and empowering space for young people- Childline is a unique service. I received the warmest start with the NSPCC, no question could not be answered and met with support from all staff members. I’ve honestly never had such a fantastic induction. My line manager and the rest of my wider team were always there for me, and I received an in-depth induction plan and training. I’ve always tried to have a job that excites me, challenges me and that I’m proud of and this role is the perfect balance of all three. I hope to be with the NSPCC for a long period of time.’ Service Head - ChildLine
