We’re looking for Social Workers to join our team

There’s a really supportive feel to our team; we have approachable and supportive managers who have an open door, regular advice surgeries and are willing to listen; we’re an experienced team, we all pull together to support each other and share our expertise.

Working with people with a learning disability can be challenging but also very rewarding. Our Community Learning Disability team provides specialist assessments, interventions and advice to adults with learning disabilities and their families.

As a Council with its eye on the future we are investing in this important service and have created additional social work capacity in our learning disability team. We are looking for experienced Social Workers to join us and work with us to meet the outcome of our service users and transform the lives.

We are committed to providing our social workers with exceptional levels of support, from a comprehensive induction through to continuous personal and professional development. We provide and encourage you to make the most of the high-quality opportunities we offer. We’re focused on your own personal and professional development; we’ll support you to enhance your skills and practice and be the best you can be. We have an established career structure in place to help you get where you want to be in your career.

Travel is an essential part of this job and therefore it would be extremely difficult for you to do your job effectively if you did not use a car for all or most of the time.  It is essential that you hold a full and valid driving license and it is expected that you will either use a council vehicle or your own car (exceptions can be made for disabled applicants).
