Children's social work

Welcome

A message from Sarah Callaghan, Director for Children and Young People

A council with its eye fixed firmly on the future and not one to get left behind - we're on an ambitious journey and looking for talented, experienced social workers to join a team that's already transforming our children and young people services.

A radical reform of how the council and partners are helping children, young people and families to thrive is gathering pace in line with our New Council approach. Now, due to retirements and reorganisation, we are looking to recruit social workers and experienced team managers.

With a strong focus on early help and improving lives, we are relentless in realising our ambition and committed to taking our workforce with us. We won't stop until we get there and we need the very best on board.

Be part of our ambition.

Our ambition is to support all children and young people to enjoy their childhood and reach their full potential. Our goal is to consistently place the child at the centre of our social work practice and to design and provide services that reflect the child's voice and are appropriate and proportionate to their level of unmet need.

Our commitment is that our workforce and elected members approach the role of corporate parent with passion and purpose, treating looked after children and young people as they would treat their own family.

To make sure we deliver the best possible outcomes for children, we want the best possible social workers to fill our current vacancies. In return, we will make sure you are rewarded.
