Great social workers. That’s what we want for the people of Devon. Social Workers who know what good looks like, who focus on the individual and their needs, and think creatively to bring about the best outcomes for all involved.
We’ve got a range of opportunities which might interest you. In addition, at the moment, we’re focussing on recruiting to Team Manager roles in our Children’s teams. We realise that good social workers need great managers, to provide the day-to-day support, practical advice, and first rate supervision that our teams want and need. So we're actively investing in our Team Managers by enhancing our employment offer, whilst providing greater support in order to improve quality, and by increasing the scope for professional development opportunities. We're also making caseloads our top priority, so that you can feel the benefit of being able to manage complex and challenging cases, with high levels of support.
We want you to be the very best practitioner you can be. To deliver on that promise, we've been through some big changes, and are committed to becoming the best Local Authority in the country for social workers. Workforce culture, staff morale, the status and recognition of social workers amongst partners – we're seeing real, tangible improvements in these fundamental areas of social work. We understand that practitioners are at the heart of everything, and that without investing in you, we cannot improve the lives of the people in Devon who need us most.
