A new deal for children’s social workers

At Gloucestershire County Council, we have not had an easy time. However, we are starting to make some improvements to the way we work and what we offer our employees. That’s why it’s a great time to join us and be part of our exciting journey. 

Firstly, we made sure that our staff are our most important asset! We have introduced a number of initiatives to ensure they are supported and valued. We have introduced a welcome and retention payment for our qualified social work employees. Social workers receive a welcome payment of £3000 with Advanced Practitioners and Team Managers receiving £5000. And we don’t stop once you start. As you may be eligible for a retention payment a well.

We make sure our staff receive the correct tools for the job. That’s why you will be provided with a smart phone and laptop to keep you connected.

We recognise the value of your work/life balance, and therefore we offer a generous annual leave scheme with the ability to purchase additional leave. 

As part of our improvement journey, we created smaller teams to enable better oversight and support for our social workers. This resulted in us increasing the number of posts in our service to help us reduce caseloads.
