We are inviting experienced social workers to our social work open day on Monday, 9 September 2019, any time between 9am-7.30pm at our stunning Number One Riverside offices.

We have a range of social work vacancies in our wonderful children’s services team, including vacancies for social workers.

We are looking for social workers who value working in a learning, supportive team environment with a positive attitude to working flexibly; recognising we all have different needs – just like our children, young people and families.

If you’re experienced in complex safeguarding, special educational needs, first response, child protection or court proceedings, then we have exciting opportunities for you to join an innovative and passionate service. 

You may be aware that our social work model is relationship based practice as we believe trusting, positive relationships are essential to supporting staff and improving the lives of children and families. We are empathetic in our work and listen to our families; building on their strengths and work towards agreed goals.

Our staff say that they:

  • Have the time and space to build authentic relationships with young people, their families and other professional - working collaboratively towards agreed goals.
  • Are able to build positive relationships with our community and families that we support.
  • Have time to listen and understand families and issues they are facing.
  • Are really proud to work here.

Rochdale is growing rapidly and is well connected to Manchester, Lancashire and Yorkshire, which makes it a truly great place to live, work and play.

But we know that action speaks louder than words so, come and visit us at our open day and gain a real flavour of how we work and have an informal discussion with managers and social workers.

The event is on all day and you can drop in at any time. No booking is required.
