We are well adapted to a hybrid model of working which includes a combination of time spent in the office and at home – our approach is to promote greater level of flexible working around personal and family commitments.

Here at Telford and Wrekin Council, we have been judged to be outstanding overall in terms of effectiveness (the only Authority in the West Midlands with this judgement). Here’s just some of the great things Ofsted had to say when they visited us recently:

  • Children are cared for and cared about
  • Social Workers and other staff who support children are very committed and they are exceptionally well trained
  • Children are listened to and their experiences are well understood
  • Senior Leaders aspire to a service for every child that they would welcome for their own
  • Children benefit from a stable workforce which is highly committed and experienced
  • Staff experience a wide range of development opportunities

As an example, one of our Team Managers said: “I have been offered a broad array of training opportunities, including specialised supervision training with the Centre for Systemic Practice. I think it would be fair to say that my experience certainly demonstrates that Telford and Wrekin are keen to encourage their social workers to develop their practice and career. It is a Local Authority which likes to grow its own.”

There’s never been a more exciting time to join our service: alongside making a difference to the lives of individuals and families, we’re adopting exciting new strengths-based approaches and are passionate about delivering continuous service improvement. And our people are at the heart of this progress: that’s why from tailored in-house training to the West Midlands Teaching Partnership, we make sure they have access to the best development opportunities.

If you share our passion for making a difference, we would be delighted if you joined us.
