Adult Social Workers

Job Reference: L52-A-19-0158

Cambridgeshire County Council
£33,816 - £41,412

We’re advancing, join us on our journey.

The pandemic has been a real challenge, maybe the hardest in our history, but we’ve advanced as a result.

- We have great progression pathways and training opportunities.

We offer a comprehensive Learning and Development programme with opportunities to develop specialisms like Practice Educator and AMHP courses.

- We have a great culture where social workers feel safe in their practice.

We are a learning organisation - sometimes the best learning comes when you don’t get it right. We turn mistakes into positive learning experiences and are always supporting each other.

- We have committed to enhancing Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI)

We have an inclusive culture and have launched a range of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion initiatives to help us promote this. Having a diverse workforce is of the utmost importance especially in terms of shared learning, discussing caseloads and achieving the best outcomes for the people who use our services.

- We have changed the way we work with more flexible and remote working

We are working to a hybrid model at present, with part-remote and flexible options available in line with our service needs. This gives our Social Workers a quiet space and plenty of time for reflection. It has also increased our Social Workers autonomy and has a positive impact on wellbeing and work-life balance.

- We have inspirational Team Managers
We have supportive Team Managers to help facilitate a culture of trust and autonomy whilst supporting Social Workers to thrive in their roles.

We’ve changed a lot but one thing’s for sure, we still love Social Workers.

Make the move to Cambridgeshire County Council and advance with us. We offer a competitive salary, a relocation package of up to £8,000, generous retention payments (available to Social Workers and Senior Social Workers in Mental Health, Adults Social Care Team, Transfer of Care Team, Learning Disability Partnership and 0-25 including Young Adults Team and Children’s Disability Services) plus tonnes of other benefits – see the attached benefits brochure for more information.
