Come and join a ‘GOOD’ authority and work with us at Barnsley Children’s Social Care Service. We are looking to recruit highly motivated, enthusiastic and committed professional Social Workers at all levels. We have high aspirations to achieve the very best outcomes for vulnerable children and young people residing in the borough. This means supporting Social Workers to develop excellent assessment and analytical skills, apply evidence based interventions and develop the confidence and skills to make timely decisions and plans for children that will achieve positive and sustainable outcomes for their future.
Developing our Social Workers is a key priority for us and you will be well supported, with access to supervision, appraisal, training and development opportunities, aimed at promoting outcomes for children and supporting career development. Our ASYEs are well supported and protected and we are part of the South Yorkshire Teaching partnership as well as a pilot local authority for the national assessment and accreditation system.
Vacancies exist in the following services: Assessment and Joint Investigation Teams including Screening (applicants who wish to work in screening will be required to be experienced.)
