At the heart of everything we do are the children and young people of Bury.

We want workers who can form relationships, seeing the strengths in families and building on those assets, always looking for solutions to support families to live together safely and for children and young people to thrive.

We want you to bring your skills and ideas and in return we will offer the benefits of a large financial investment into the Department of Children and Young People.

Browse opportunities in the Children and Young People's department, or contact us for an informal chat.

We want to invest in you and we have a clear vision around succession planning for our most talented workers.

We have had a challenging Ofsted and now we are looking for experienced social workers to join us in Bury.

The Ofsted ILACS (Inspection of Local Authority Children’s Services) inspection in 2021 has given us strong messages about what we need to do to improve services for children and young people.

We are on the start of that journey and are looking for experienced social workers who can bring their expertise and skills to support and shape our journey.

We want the best talent in Bury and need social workers who want to influence the services we are developing and are looking for a clear career pathway. Our offer includes:

  • access to a strong learning and development offer
  • bespoke induction package
  • being part of a small local authority with small teams, ensuring you have access to regular informal and formal support from you manager
  • small and manageable caseloads that allow you to know your families well and allow your practice to flourish
  • financial rewards package of up to £2,000 for experienced social workers who commit to Bury
  • based close to Bury town centre with good transport links and amenities
