Reasons to join us
We're a very supportive, settled team, with lots of experienced social workers. Some of our social workers have been with us for over 10 years!
Our social workers come from a wide range of backgrounds. These include residential, looked after children and disabled children social work.
There’s lots of chances for training and you're always encouraged to continue to develop. For example, we have social work champions for:
- sexual abuse
- looked after children
Having champions not only allows you to develop specific knowledge, but you can learn from those peers too. Join our team and you'll also receive regular monthly supervisions.
Hear from our social workers
Every child deserves the chance to reach their potential. Being a children’s social worker is about supporting families to make the changes needed for the child to do so.
