Are you ready for transformation?
Come and work for one of the highest performing Children’s Services departments in the country.
As a Local Authority appointed by the Secretary of State to be a ‘Partner in Practice’, we have the freedom to innovate, be flexible and trial new ways of working to improve frontline children’s social work. We are now in the next exciting stage of reforming children’s social care practice, and have:
expanded our team of social work personal assistants to reduce the bureaucracy and administrative burden on social workers, so they can concentrate on making a difference to children and families that need support
extended the use of volunteers who offer mentoring, return from missing interviews and parenting support
created multi-disciplinary teams focusing on the whole family's needs, addressing issues of mental health and domestic abuse
committed to have child and family social workers assessed and accredited, against a new, Department for Education professional practice framework, by 2020.
Hampshire is consistently judged by Ofsted as ‘good’ with ‘outstanding’ leadership and governance. The JTAI highlighting the positive multi-agency working with partner agencies.
Extensive employee benefits package.
We are committed to supporting Continuing Professional Development, providing opportunities at every step of your career, through access to accredited training via Winchester and Bournemouth University.

The support’s been phenomenal, there is a lot of communication between social workers and managers. I feel I know where Hampshire is going, we’re very innovative
It’s nice to know that you wake up every morning and want to come into work, and are excited about it. I think that’s how I know I am in the perfect job role for me
