Croydon Council

There has never been a greater focus on children’s services in Croydon than right now, making it an exciting place to take the next step in your social work career.

The local area has thrived in recent years, boosted significantly by the £5.25 billion regeneration programme, meaning we have so much to offer. Our employees rave about the local area, whether it’s the fantastic shops, the market or Box Park which has a range of restaurants, street food vendors and a number of live music events.

Our modern offices are perfectly placed in the heart exciting Croydon. This makes us easily accessible, both from central London, 15 minutes away by train, and the south of England.

What makes Croydon special is our people – both within the council and throughout the borough. Our diverse population has made Croydon a thriving cultural hub, it also makes it a truly unique environment in which to practice social work.

Croydon is a young place. More than 94,000 residents are under 18 – that’s almost one quarter of Croydon’s population and more than any other London borough.

Join Croydon Council now and you’ll have an opportunity to help shape the future of children’s services. We are looking for people who are fully committed to making sure all children in Croydon are safe, happy and healthy. The future is theirs.

Here in Croydon, you’ll find a friendly and collaborative environment. Our offices are always buzzing – a hive of activity, where information, experience and expertise is shared across the service. Could Croydon be your future too?
