As part of South Tyneside's drive for continuous improvement we are looking for an enthusiastic, positive person to work alongside our existing staff of Personal Advisor’s within the Leaving Care Team as part of the Integrated Children Looked After Service.

This is an exciting time to work for South Tyneside Council where there is a real commitment and passion in delivering outstanding services to care leavers. We are looking for people with energy and enthusiasm who are able to put young people first and recognise their strengths.

The role will provide support and interventions to young people in, or leaving care age 16-25. The personal advisor will be the key professional for young people over 18, carrying out assessment of need and providing practical and emotional support based on the assessment and subsequent co-developed pathway plan. The role will also provide support and intervention to young people requiring a service in line with the Southwark judgement.

You will also fulfil the role and responsibilities of Personal Advisor to young people over the age of 18 that have left care as well as building relationships and offering support to young people who are age 16 and 17.

As a personal advisor you will work independently, providing direct support and interventions to young people under direction and support of the Assistant Team Manager or Practice Manager. You will also have access to practice guidance and support from social workers and senior social workers.

As we are committed to enhancing the service and offer to young people, the role will require a flexible approach to providing support to young people outside of office hours as required.
