Would you like to join a council that actively supports staff and is forging a future for all?

Dudley borough is a great place to call home and with the launch of our new community-led vision “Forging a Future for All” now is the time to join us and be part of this exciting journey.

With ambitious plans to create a thriving borough, where people want to live, work and visit, the vision is built on organisations across the borough working together.

“Children first and at the heart of all we do”

When you join Dudley Children’s Services you will be supported by inspirational managers and our innovative and nationally recognised Centre for Professional Practice every step of the way. We will help you enhance your passion and make a real difference to improving the lives of our families, children and young people.

“The new children’s services senior management team has brought energy and direction and is developing a clear vision for the service.… Leaders know the service well.”

We are proud of our achievements:

Quality assurance is driven by our innovative Centre for Professional Practice (CPP). The CPP is located at the heart of Children’s Services and drives a systematic audit programme, which is having a positive impact on frontline practice. Key performance indicators are improving across the board.

- Our Early Help offer, delivered through five flourishing family centres, is extending to a wide range of children and families. This is delivering positive change for children through early identification of need and well-coordinated intervention by partners and is reducing the demand for statutory services.

- Average caseloads for social workers have reduced with staff supportive and positive about the improvements we have made. There is a growing body of evidence of the voice and participation of children and young people in the planning and review of their care and in the wider development of services. 

Want to be part of a new kind of local authority, which actively invests in its staff?

Our reshaped service offers a great opportunity for staff to influence and develop as we accelerate the pace of change. We want the best people to travel with us and to reap the rewards along the way.

Then we want to hear from you!
