Further Information

Tight teams, low caseloads, life changing results. It’s a bold statement to make.

Join our children’s social care teams at Peterborough City Council and experience it for yourself.

“Peterborough values me… it’s a compassionate organisation that genuinely values its workers”

“I feel safe in my practice, I feel safe to say I think I might have got this wrong”

“We can be really effective in the work that we do and the outcomes we achieve for children – that makes it worth getting up in the morning”.

These are just some of the responses we had from our workers when we asked them why they love working here. Does this sound like an environment where you could make a real difference?

Having achieved ‘Good’ in our 2018 Ofsted inspection we have firmly set our sights on ‘Outstanding’, and are looking for a passionate and committed social care practitioner to work alongside our social workers in the assessment services.

Our Assessment teams are fast paced, lively and interesting.

The successful candidate will have:
• A proactive and adaptable approach
• A passion for ensuring that Children and Families receive a positive and
timely first experience of our service
• Experience of working within a social care environment. In return we can offer you:
• A competitive salary
• Excellent pension scheme
• Agile working
• Bespoke training.
• Working as part of a supportive and compassionate team with a great sense
of community.

If you would love to work for an authority that will genuinely love you back, apply today. #welovesocialworkers
