Job Description

Rediscover your passion for social work in Northamptonshire

Northamptonshire County Council has restructured and expanded its Children's service and made the improvement of these services its number one priority.

To fulfil their ambitious and achievable improvement plan, they have rebuilt their work force structure and are now seeking dedicated Qualified Social Workers, Senior Practioners and Team Managers to join their committed team on a permanent basis.

Real Vision:
To improve the outcomes for Children and Young people a five year plan has been developed and there have already been significant improvements that will not only enhance the standards of care but also improve the working conditions and practices of social workers. £12 million of additional funding has already been invested to support year one of this plan.

Great Support:
Providing social workers with tangible support and supervision is one of the key objectives of the council. An effective workload management system has been implemented bringing case loads down already and the stated goal is to cap case loads at 18 cases for Children in Need or 20 cases for Looked After Children by the summer of 2014.

The Right Move:
Northamptonshire is ideally located within an hour's commute of London, Birmingham, Oxford and Cambridge. It is also a great place to live with a combination of picturesque country villages and all the urban amenities & shops you would expect.

As a forward thinking Local Authority offering staff a better work life balance, generous salaries, comprehensive benefits packages and a joining bonus of £3,000, Northamptonshire is the right move.
