We’re Recruiting! Join an authority that continues to invest in children’s social care, and enjoy excellent career progression , a stable & permanent workforce , plus inspirational leadership and support .

Now is the time to join a genuinely forward thinking council, and one of only three in the West Midlands rated as ‘Good’ by Ofsted.

Many social work practitioners grapple with a desire to grow in the profession while working directly with children and families rather than in management. So how do you make that work? For Staffordshire County Council, the answer is to use its size to its advantage, using specialist teams alongside a clear social work offer to provide choice and career experience across its social work teams.

Staffordshire County Council are investing in social work at all levels, running Step Up to Social Work and Frontline graduate programmes to encourage the next generation of social workers, while also being a key member of the West Midlands Teaching Partnership to support the ongoing development of those already practising. This serves the council’s overall aim, which is to support families to safely care for their children via the lowest level and least intrusive support within their communities.

To do this, we need skilled social work teams who are supported professionally and personally to do their very best work every day.

Practitioners are enabled to do intensive work with families through Staffordshire’s Smart Working initiative, which allows social workers to work flexibly in their communities – and from home – through the use of tablets and smartphones.

We are committed to continually supporting and professionally developing all our staff through our strength based practice model of tools and interventions, which contributes to a healthy work-life balance.   Our Social workers are also able to claim Essential Car User allowance – worth up to £963 a year – to cover costs of car travel to and from visits.
