Life-changing work.

Game-changing support.

Our Social Workers make a huge difference to the lives of people across our county. They take pride in supporting children and families and we’re equally proud to help them give their best in whatever ways we can. That’s why you can expect everything from agile and flexible working options to exceptional learning and development if you join our team. You can also expect our commitment to creating the best service we can.

Although we’re already rated as ‘Good’ by OFSTED, we’re determined to uphold the highest standards and drive continual improvement and learning. That’s why we’ve begun an exciting transformation, underpinned by a restorative practice model, which our staff and the children and families we work with experience positively. If you’ve not worked in this way before, don’t worry – we’ll give you full training to bring you up to speed. As we shift to a whole family approach to prevention and early help, you’ll have more time to change the lives of the most vulnerable.

Working with us means collaborating across our different teams, and sharing best practice, knowledge, and experience to continually improve the way we do things. Support is important, as we work in a big county with some diverse challenges – but together we can meet all kinds of needs and demands.

We’re looking for qualified Social Workers who are registered with Social Work England. You’ll bring some experience and have a valid driving licence, so you can reach people easily. Above all, you’ll bring the desire to make life better for people in Staffordshire through high quality care and support. In return, you can expect excellent pay and rewards including wide-ranging benefits, plus the chance to live in a beautiful area.

With a positive work-life balance too, it’s rewarding in every sense.
