We are investing in children’s social work in Derbyshire by re-modelling the service to create smaller teams with reduced caseloads.

This has created a number of exciting opportunities, for both newly qualified and experienced social workers, to join our child protection, children in need and disability teams across all six localities of the county (Amber Valley, Chesterfield, Erewash, High Peak, Bolsover and North East and South Derbyshire) and our specialist disability service.

We work hard to ensure that our Social Workers have the time and resources to be their best and deliver good outcomes for children and families. Our vision means working creatively to inspire and empower children, young people and their families to be the best they can be.

We believe that hard work and commitment to your role should be rewarded, so we offer a package to our social workers that will ensure you always feel supported and valued:

  • A manageable case load
  • Accelerated pay progression opportunities
  • Access to an excellent range of training and development opportunities, worth over £5000
  • Systemic training equivalent to Post Graduate Certificate
  • Excellent supervision and a supportive peer network
  • Effective leadership and management
  • Fantastic opportunities for career progression and further formal qualifications
  • Diverse range of cases providing an exciting, challenging and rewarding career
  • High morale within the teams
  • DBS fee covered and HCPC registration fee reimbursed

Derbyshire is a fantastic place to live and work, with the miles of peaceful countryside and quaint villages making the county extremely appealing. In addition to location, there are a number of perks to being a Derbyshire County Council employee:

  • Local Government Pension Scheme
  • Generous annual leave and flexi time scheme
  • Travel expenses
  • Discount on leisure centre memberships
  • Free car parking at most sites

  • Occupational Health service
  • Access to sessions with a trained physiotherapist
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Easy access to a number of large cities, with excellent travel links
