Current vacancies

Fostering Social Worker – Our advertisement reads:

Foster Care Ireland (FCI) is an Irish owned non-statutory fostering agency in north Dublin. We have an exciting opportunity to appoint a Fostering Social Worker to our team.  FCI is committed to securing the best outcomes for the children placed with us and we invest in and support our foster carers accordingly. This is a position for a team player who will constructively engage with the challenges and work towards sustainable outcomes. 

We recognise the value of informed practices such as DDP (Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy) which we are actively adopting in support to our foster carers.  Our attitude of acceptance, curiosity and empathy helps us to understand how trauma and attachment difficulties are communicated in the daily lives of our foster families. We encourage regulation and reflection to discover the meaning behind presenting behaviour.

A part-time  appointment will be considered where the applicant has a proven track record and clearly fits with our cultural ethos.  

The salary and benefit package will be commensurate with experience.

Applicants should have qualifications in social work, experience in delivering services in the areas of fostering, child protection and/or children in care.
