We’re Recruiting!

Come and join us because… we’re empowering our teams to work with pride and purpose.

Pride in the great work they do

Purpose in the real impact they have on people’s lives

Now’s the time to join a forward-thinking council rated as ‘Good’ by Ofsted.

We want to take the step to being rated ‘outstanding’ and we need people like you! We’ve transformed our Children’s Services. This started with us moving to our restorative practice approach and we’re now embedding a whole system approach to social work. We’re freeing up social worker time with admin support, so you’ll be able to do the work that really makes a difference - working with children and families, helping them stay together as much as possible. And you’re important to us too, that’s why we’ll work hard to ensure your wellbeing, work-life balance and give you space to develop and progress.

We’re also utilising the best technology through Staffordshire’s Smart Working initiative. This sees our social workers able to work flexibly in their communities – and from home – taking a common sense approach to how, when and where we work.

We’re also 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 member of the West Midlands Teaching Partnership to support the ongoing development of those already practising alongside launching a new Aspiring Managers Programme.
