At South Gloucestershire Council, we’ll support you at every moment. Because we don’t just care about the children and families we work with, we care about each and every talented social worker here, too.
That’s because we’re a positive, pro-active team, with supportive management who listen to ideas, and act on them – fast. We’re absolutely focused on providing an excellent service; we keep workloads manageable, we welcome flexible working and we’re recognised for the opportunities we provide for career development, training and secondment.
