Hello and a huge welcome to our Stockport Family jobs pages. It’s exciting to know that you’ve made it this far and hopefully what you read will leave you feeling enthused and encouraged to apply for one of the opportunities on offer here in Stockport.

I am incredibly proud to be Stockport’s Director for Children’s Social Care and principal social worker, but prouder still of the team of colleagues who make our fabulous services in Stockport Family across health, education and social care for children and families.

We are hugely ambitious in Stockport and there is permission and investment from our Chief Executive and DCS to work creatively and innovatively so you will benefit from this approach and our strong learning culture if you join us. Some of the innovative practices you and your families will benefit from include:

Stockport can offer you a whole wealth of opportunities and support to be the best social work practitioner you can be and to fall back in love with social work. We have consistently strong social work practice which is supported by a friendly, supportive learning culture with restorative practice at the heart of everything we do. You will feel valued, respected, listened to and can work effectively with colleagues across the service. Whatever you need to achieve the best possible outcomes for your children and families is at your fingertips and you will have the relationships and connections to deliver change and make a difference.

Our last Ofsted report rated us good across the board and said: “Social workers value this approach and told inspectors it was one of the reasons they liked working in the local authority. It successfully promotes a strong and supportive culture, where children receive the right level of support at the right time.”

I hope you will feel inspired to find out more and apply for one of the posts we have on offer. Whatever your level of experience, if you have the right values and share our passion for being the difference that makes a difference for our children and families, we will give you the time, tools and support to make the most of your skills, talents and the opportunity to improve children’s lives.

So good luck with your application and I look forward to meeting you in the future on your journey to become part of Stockport Family.
