Team Manager, Milton Keynes/Warwickshire

Organisation: Barnardos
Salary: £26,832 - £33,758 p.a. pro rata
Location: West Midlands
Closing date:

You already have sound experience of working with children and young people affected by custody. So bring your talents to this vital service - and take your career forward with one of the UK's largest children's charity. 

Leading, motivating self and others, and supporting a dedicated team of advocates/children's rights workers, you will oversee all aspects of service delivery. That will include ensuring that children and young people can access services and entitlements, developing their self-efficacy and resolving any issues relating to their welfare, care and treatment. You¿ll also work closely with other agencies whilst clearly demonstrating your independence from the centre, and directly manage complex cases.

Clearly, this is a challenging and rewarding role in a challenging environment. As such, it demands a highly motivated, solution focused, resilient and tenacious professional who can champion the rights of children and achieve the best possible outcomes. 

Proven experience of safeguarding young people detained within the criminal justice system is essential too, along with excellent team leadership skills, a knowledge of relevant legislation and an understanding of National Advocacy Standards and the UN Convention for the Rights of the Child. You should also bring a proactive and flexible approach to working hours, a full driving licence and access to a vehicle.
