Below are just two of the roles that we are currently recruiting to:

Our door is open – we want to hear from people who are thinking about joining us so we always have a social worker vacancy open and available rather than enforcing rigid and inflexible closing dates.  This also allows you to take your time looking over our offer and not feeling pressured to a timescale.

We do undertake ‘rolling recruitment’ so that we are always assessing and interviewing interested candidates, and if we do not have a specific vacancy available, we ensure all the checks and balances are in place ready for when we do so we can start people quickly.  We also try to recruit over our established numbers of roles, to build in some capacity/flexibility and ensure that we do not have a reliance on agency workers, but look to utilise our own team members.

Modern approach

We have  been modernising our recruitment for social workers, so gone is a long and onerous application  form – replaced with an online slicker process where your CV forms the biggest part of your application.  Therefore, you are in control of what information you want to share with us in the format you want to share it in.  We still perform all our safer recruitment responsibilities but we want the application process to be painless for you.

Apply now – go to our Jobs at the Council web page where you can sign up and apply for our social worker roles.
