Our innovative approach to recruitment means that we are experiencing a significant upturn in potential Foster Carers being attracted to the Next Step Fostering Group so are seeking additional Independent Social Workers to take on the assessment of these new Fostering families. 

The Next Step Fostering Group’s innovation has also spread to our assessment process – we no longer use the ‘Form F’, instead using a much shorter and more efficient assessment process which means that we are able to bring high calibre Carers to their Fostering Assessment Panel much faster. This new process supports a number of efficiencies throughout the business, all adding to our strong reputation with OFSTED.

By becoming an assessing ISW with the Next Step Fostering Group and by helping to bring more Foster Carers to Panel you may also successfully help build numbers to warrant your Social Worker own case load, should you wish to join the organisation on a more permanent basis.
