This is Redcar and Cleveland. 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.
We have many reasons to be proud of our existing services for children, young people and their families in Redcar and Cleveland. We have a passionate workforce who are committed to supporting children and young people to feel safe, healthy, happy and ready to learn and achieve. We respect everyone as equally valued members of our community by listening to their views and using their opinions to help shape our services.
Are you the right person to help our children thrive and fulfil their dreams?
If you share the vision of Redcar and Cleveland’s Children and Families Directorate, this could be the opportunity you are looking for.
The successful candidate will be based in one of our three assessment teams. The teams are based at Daisy Lane, Ormesby and co-located with our Multi-Agency Children's Hub.
You'll manage a complex, varied caseload, as well as acting as a mentor to less experienced team members - providing them with coaching and guidance so that they can develop their skills to support families to build resilience and facilitate positive change.
We are a team that works together to do a really difficult job with a shared passion to do the right thing and make a difference.
We care about the children and young people in R&C and we care about our social workers…..
We are developing our career progression pathway for experienced workers beyond the traditional management route with access to high quality training opportunities in practice areas such as contextual safeguarding, domestic abuse, work with adolescents, practice development and neurodiversity.
The council holds ambassador status for the North East Better Health at Work Award.
We offer very attractive terms and conditions of employment, including generous annual leave entitlement, flexible working hours (where appropriate), membership of the Local Government Pension Scheme and access to numerous other salary sacrifice schemes.
Recently we have launched a new employee health and wellbeing platform, which includes an exciting range of staff benefits, including, spreading the cost of home and electronics, bike shop, car scheme, gym membership, lifestyle savings and an Employee Assistance Programme available to all employees.
