The journey continues.
Careers in Children's Services

We always put children and their care first, which means it's in their best interests to employ the very best Social Workers and care professionals we can. This has driven us to broaden our search across the country, specifically London, in order to find experienced, ambitious and caring candidates for Sandwell's children.

By creating a stable, high performing workforce and using innovative business practice we are building a healthy management and positive culture. For instance, there is a focus on continued personal development through the ranks, an emphasis on fast tracking experienced Social Workers and restructured managerial support which empowers and enables our workforce.

Simply put, we aim to make our working environment as efficient, innovative and enjoyable to be a part of as possible - because if we do, the real beneficiaries will be Sandwell's children.
