Things are happening and changing at pace here in Children’s Services in Stockton on Tees. There’s lots going on and we have come a long way. We’re seeking ambitious, hardworking and innovative people to join our team.

We want to empower families to be the best they can be in Stockton. If you have both drive and passion in supporting families to succeed we want to hear from you. We have created an additional team to support our children and families and we are looking for experienced family workers to expand our offer.

The Senior Family Worker will provide high-quality assessments and interventions with families across both Help and Support and Social Care, in order to support and empower families to improve outcomes for children, young people and families. The successful candidate will work flexibly and collaboratively across Children’s Services and with other agencies, partners and stakeholders to meet the needs of children, young people and families.

This is an exciting time to join us as we continue to hold children at the centre of everything that we do and reinforce our commitment to embedding relationship -based practice.

We recognise that we will promote the best outcomes for children by focusing on relationships with and within families, and also with each other as a staff team and with our multi-agency partners.

We’re revising our workforce strategy to support this and investing in additional resources to create manageable workloads, with an emphasis on working together in a supportive team environment.

We are expanding our social work teams, introducing new team structures and expanding our help and support (early help) offer, making up an extensive offer to families across Children’s Services.

We’ll support you to flourish and be the best you can, delivering high-quality services and working closely with professionals from a range of agencies to improve the lived experience of children.

We offer agile working, with flexible and family friendly policies, that have a work/life balance at their core, plus lots, lots more…as you can see below.

It’s rewarding
• Competitive salary to match your expertise
• 26-31 days of annual leave (depending on length of service), plus an annual leave purchase scheme
• Excellent local government pension scheme

And we’ll support you
• Great tech to keep you connected
• Family friendly policies
• Access to free health and wellbeing services
• Leisure discounts
• Bus and train discounts, cycle to work scheme
• Supportive management and leadership
• A wide range of learning and development opportunities
• . …And much much more!
