Senior Social Worker, Children & Families Pod


Do you want to be part of an organisation with a model of practice focused on support and containment for social workers?

Can you use relationship-based practice to make a difference for children and families?

Do you want to work for an organisation committed to becoming anti-racist?


About us

We have vacancies for social workers in our pods supporting children and families throughout their journey with us.

“Social workers’ morale is high and they enjoy working in Brighton & Hove.”

What You Will Do

  1. We currently have opportunities for social workers in our generic children’s social work pods, which work with children all the way across their journey with our service.

    For these posts, you must hold a Professional Social Work Qualification and be registered as a social worker with Social Work England.  However, if you are an experienced social worker who is thinking about ‘returning to social work’, but who is not registered with Social Work England, do get in touch with Tom Stibbs.  We recruit for newly-qualified social workers separately in April.

    In addition, you will need to have experience of working directly with children in need and their families in a multi-disciplinary service and be able to build strong, meaningful relationships with children from diverse backgrounds, their families and key agencies.

What we can offer you
