Are you looking to use your social work skills to truly make a difference? Do you want to work in small teams with supportive managers and colleagues, where you can really get involved with children and families and help them change their future? Are you looking for a smaller but more varied case load that includes children in need, child protection, care and adoption?

 

If yes then North Somerset Council’s community family teams are looking for ambitious, innovative and talented social workers. We have a number of roles on offer, from post qualified to post two year qualified and consultant social work practitioner, giving you the chance to be at the sharp end of social care no matter your career stage.

 

For the right person we offer a great work/life balance with a generous leave package, ongoing professional training and development, flexible and mobile working options, an employee assistance scheme which includes a counselling service and the chance to join a final salary pension.

 

Our offices are based in and around North Somerset set out in the community within the beautiful towns of Clevedon and Portishead, or by the seaside in Weston-super-Mare.  All locations are just off the M5 motorway, giving easy commutable access from neighbouring Bristol, Bath and the surrounding countryside.

 

With our council’s commitment to health and wellbeing and supporting families to give children the best start in life our team can give even the most experienced social worker a fresh challenge alongside opportunities for career development.
