“Working with different foster carers and assessing carers to be foster carers has been a highlight in my work with TACT. The foster carers the charity have are experienced, are welcoming, willing to learn and develop.”
“The flexibility of being a self-employed form F assessor fits in around my personal life, which enables me to have a good work-life balance.”
“TACT provide regular supervision; the specialist social worker that supports me with my independent work is excellent, very personable, experienced and willing to provide advice and support.”
– Melanie, Self-Employed Social Worker with TACT
Please refer to the role specification section of our downloadable job description on the Form F Assessor job advert for full details, but you’ll have a relevant professional qualification in social work, together with valid Social Worker registration.

People decide to work with us on a self-employed basis for many reasons. Experienced social workers love the fact that they can choose which days they work and for how many hours, flexing depending on other commitments or even to ease into semi-retirement. Others simply love the fact that they can still earn a great wage, but with a greater focus on work-life balance. Parents enjoy that they get to spend more time with their young children and have greater control over their workload. Whatever your walk of life, it’s certainly a compelling option for many.
We’re proud to have been awarded an ‘Outstanding’ rating by Ofsted for our Safer Recruitment Policy and Procedures.
To maintain these rigorous standards and ensure we continue to offer the best possible care for our children and young people, we’ll examine the skills, experience, qualifications and values of all applicants. If you’re successful in your application, and accept our offer, you’ll be expected to work in line with our safeguarding policies.
