It’s an exciting time to be in Oldham as we continue our work to ensure the protection of our adults, families, children and young people. We’re constantly working to improve our services and we’re looking for committed people to join us. Our services are inclusive, they respect and recognise the diverse needs of the Oldham borough.

Adults, families, children, and young people are at the centre of everything we do

We want all our adults, families, children, and young people to have a safe, happy, and healthy life with access to great opportunities giving them the best possible life choices. As a council we are committed to providing outstanding practice and we recognise the importance of providing our staff with supportive environments to nurture good practice.

We have lots of progression opportunities for our Social Workers through all stages of their career, as we recognise your professional development and expertise.

Positive improvements from OFSTED

Our latest OFSTED feedback states that our residents benefited from an effective range of support and services. Senior leaders maintained a clear focus on keeping children and adults safe and improving the quality of social work practice in Oldham and we are proud of our staff and their efforts to achieve this result.

We recognise the importance of health, well-being, and a flexible work-life balance

We understand that the role can be at times emotionally demanding and we are committed to supporting you to lead a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

We can offer you a choice of different working arrangements giving you the work-life balance you want. As an organisation we promote staff well-being and would encourage you to take regular breaks, stop for lunch, finish work on time and take your full holiday entitlement.

We want the best professionals, and you will be rewarded for your expertise – at a time when the council has made a significant investment in its Social Care workforce.

We will be happy to speak with you on the day and some of our services can offer informal interviews whilst at the show. This will be your chance to have your questions answered and for us to find out a little more about you.

Come and say hello to our friendly team on stand 20 on the day, we look forward to meeting you!
