We are a council committed to becoming child-centred to deliver the best possible outcome for children, young people and families. Join us at this pivotal time.

As part of our vision to be perceived, by the people of Rotherham, as providing an 'outstanding' service, we have invested in, and continue to put in place new ways of working. What does this mean for our workforce?

 We are radically restructuring to enable us to deploy much smaller teams. This means a greater degree of supervision and a more appropriate caseload level – enabling our practitioners to focus on fewer customers, ensuring those who need us most get the attention they need.

Our locality teams are placed within the communities they serve, so they really get to know the neighbourhood; building close relationships with partners, children and families in the local area. This deepens trust and familiarity, helping us to put vulnerable children and young people at the centre of what we do. By being on the ground and visible in schools, homes and centres, we forge vital links with the community, opening up communication and creating an approachable presence in Rotherham.


Join our growing team

We are going through a pivotal time of change. It's all part of our commitment to create a performance-led culture that puts the child at the centre of everything we do.

To achieve our ambitions we have put in place a radical restructure, an invigorated senior leadership team and a significant increase in our workforce so we can put more people on the ground, recruit talented managers and fulfill our vision; to be considered 'outstanding' by the children, young people and families who we support every day.
