We are an ambitious Council keen to build on our strong track record of innovation and partnership working, ensuring that we create a flourishing future for the borough and all of its residents. Key to this is a committed workforce who always gives their best. Offering a fast-paced, progressive working environment, Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council is a great career move.

The Adults & Communities Directorate, consists of four strands, Adult Social Care, Community Development, Neighbourhoods and Public Health. Our aims are to continue to provide essential and highly valued services and to build capacity to enable local communities to make lasting change, improve quality of life, prosperity and the environment.

We place significant value on social work principles within our workforce to support our approach to Adult Social Care. We are committed to work in partnership with the people of our borough to develop and maintain independence, with a developing focus on an asset based approach.

In the role of Principal Social Worker, you will take the lead in promoting social work values and practice across the Adult Social Care workforce within a supportive, enthusiastic and committed team of experienced professionals.

As an experienced, registered social worker you will be confident to challenge practice where required and enable practitioners within Adult Social Care to reflect and learn within a supportive environment.

This is a superb opportunity to assume a senior leadership role where you will be supported to deliver real practice improvements across Adult Social Care; as well as being able to make a positive contribution to ensure that those with care and support needs achieve positive outcomes.
