Experienced Children's Qualified Social Worker HCC91
As a Children’s Social Worker you would be working for one of the top five performing children’s social care authorities. We’re also one of seven authorities, selected by the Department for Education to be a ‘Partner in Practice’ – developing new ways of working to update and enhance social work practice.
We are committed to working with social workers in their development and to create the right conditions for good practice to flourish.
The County Council has committed to an additional investment of £6.5 million in additional staff and resource over the next two years. This will be achieved over the next two years which will enable us to safely reduce the number of children in our care.
With more great social workers like you we will have greater capacity to support families who are struggling to cope at the very earliest stages. It is our fundamental belief that, wherever possible, what is best for children is for them to remain living with their parents or wider family - bringing a child in to care should be the very last resort.
