Welcome to Social Work Cardiff – the home of Cardiff Council’s social work team.

Whether you are newly qualified looking for your first role, or an experienced social worker ready to take the next steps in your career, Social Work Cardiff has opportunities for you.

We’re recruiting people who want to make a difference to join our talented team in Wales’ thriving capital city.

Working for us

Cardiff is a vibrant and diverse capital city with a variety of unique demands and challenges. Social Work Cardiff is at the forefront of developing pioneering social care services that are designed to make a real impact – both now and into the future. You will be at the centre of helping us shape and deliver these services.

Our leadership team will stand by your side, supporting you every step of the way. Our ambition is to support our workforce by reducing caseloads so that social workers can do what they do best; work directly with vulnerable children, adults and families.

Our teams

We have a range of teams specialising in different areas of social work, some of which are based centrally in Cardiff Bay with access to other locations, such as community hubs, for flexible and agile working.

We also have locality teams who work from three different localities across the city and in the heart of the community, supporting people in these areas. The locality approach allows you to embed yourself into the community and provides greater opportunities to work from a location that suits you.

Our 3 localities are North and West, East and South East and City, South/South West.

Living in Cardiff

The city of Cardiff is a great choice for your social work career, it’s vibrant and affordable with an excellent quality of life and international reputation. The city boasts a varied mix of cultural sights, nightlife, shopping, world-class sporting venues and first class facilities and amenities. We also have more green spaces per person than any of the UK core cities.

If you want to escape city life, we’re only a 30 minute drive to the Brecon Beacons National Park and a short distance from many of South Wales’ beautiful and unspoiled beaches.
