Non Executive Directors – Social Work England

CLOSES 12:00 MIDDAY 12TH OCTOBER 2018

High quality social work can transform lives. Social workers play an absolutely critical role in delivering a range of vital services to vulnerable children, families and adults.  Social Work England will be a new specialist regulator for all social workers that has an absolute focus on protecting the health and wellbeing of those individuals who need social work support.  

The Department for Education and the Department of Health & Social Care are looking to appoint two additional, high quality, non-executive members to the Board of Social Work England. Do you have expertise and ability in data technology or audit and risk? If so, we’d like to hear from you. In addition to having specific skills in one of these areas, you will have a commitment to equality, inclusion and user engagement; and the ability to set strategic direction and work collaboratively as part of a team.  Previous experience as a non-executive director is also desirable.

You will be required to think strategically and have the ability to positively and constructively influence decisions at senior Board level. You will also be expected to establish consultative relationships with a diverse range of stakeholders including other regulators, professional associations, training providers and employees, as well the social work profession and users of its services.

These will be challenging but extremely rewarding roles. Your input will contribute to the protection of the vulnerable in our society, as well as to raising standards in social work practice.
