About Us:

Adopt Thames Valley (ATV) launched in December 2017 and encompasses the ATV Letterbox Services, Birth Relative Support Services and services for Adults Affected by Adoption.
 
We work on 'the front line' undertaking short-term crisis work and working with placements at risk of disruption. We also undertake longer-term work with a strong preventative and therapeutic focus: group work; training; direct work with children and families and providing therapeutic interventions.
 
ATV was formed by Bracknell, West Berkshire, Windsor and Maidenhead, Wokingham, Reading, Swindon and Oxfordshire. It is hosted by Oxfordshire County Council with offices in Oxford, Woodley (Berks) and Swindon.
 

About the role:

We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated Assistant Team Manager to join our specialist team providing post-order support to adopters, special guardians and their children, adults affected by adoption, and to birth families.
 
You will be joining a supportive team of aspirational, creative and committed social workers. You will be based at the Swindon office, and will have supervisory responsibility for staff based in Swindon. Some travel to all other offices will be expected.

Would you like to be involved in developing this growing service and supporting other committed and skilled social workers within the service? 
 
This post is ideally suited to you if you are wishing to extend your existing skills and knowledge in supporting families and wanting to be part of the strong and committed management team driving a new service forward.

Rewards and Benefits:

It really is true that every single job role here contributes to bettering the lives of the people in our county - we want to do this for our employees too. We are proud of our strong flexible working culture, including the opportunity for flexibility on working hours and the use of technology to support agile working.
