We are an ambitious Local Authority who are committed to continued improvement activity in driving strength based, relational and collaborative practice in our work with children, young people, and their family networks. We want to make sure that we make a positive difference to the lives of children and young people.
Creativity, ambition and a focus on people. That’s what matters at Barnsley Council. Our award-winning council is on an exciting journey of change. It’s all about putting local people at the heart of everything, listening to and doing good for our communities. We’re now more innovative, more efficient and provide better value for money. The changes are clear to see - from new businesses and jobs, to improving school results and to museums being recognised for their community engagement.

As a highly committed and motivated individual you will support the work of a range of strategic service improvement and quality assurance frameworks designed to support social care practice and improving outcomes for our children, young people, and families. You will play a key role in undertaking preparatory activities for statutory and regulatory inspections and other test of assurance including audit programmes which are continuously providing assurance on the quality and impact of our services delivered.

You will need experience of continuous service improvement and associated governance and assurance frameworks, with a strong enthusiasm for improving service delivery. You will need the ability to communicate effectively with a variety of internal and external stakeholders and you will need to be highly organised with the ability to prioritise conflicting workloads, working flexibly on your own initiative.
