Closing date:

Are you proactive and adaptable Social Worker looking to take the next step in your career?

Then now is the perfect time to Join the Cambridge City Assessment Team as a Senior Practitioner

The Senior Practitioner role would ideally suit an experienced Social Worker who has good mentoring and leadership skills. The work is immensely rich and varied day-to-day and allows for a high level of multi-agency working often to tight timelines.

This role will initially be based in Shire Hall Cambridge but will move to our newly refurbished offices based in CPDC Trumpington later this year. Trumpington is an easily accessible location with great transport links, is close to local amenities and comes with the benefit of free parking.

Senior Practitioners will have a reduced case load to ensure that they can support the Team Manager and line manage staff within the team.

Here in the Cambridge Assessment Team, we are dedicated to your personal and professional development. We have separated case and personal supervision as we believe that our Social Workers should be given dedicated time to focus on their own development, as well as their caseloads. We offer our Social Workers a variety of training packages that include Practice Educator programmes, Achieving Best Evidence programmes and PAMs.

Our other benefits include a competitive salary, a relocation package of up to £8,000, generous annual leave entitlement (28 days plus Bank Holidays), local government pension scheme and agile working.

But most importantly you will be part of a team that will have your back.

You must be a qualified social worker with current SWE registration.

If you like the sound of moving to an authority where social workers are truly valued, get in touch with us today by calling Beth on 01223 475 920 or emailing

We are proud to serve the diverse communities of Cambridgeshire and want our workforce to reflect this diversity, which we believe is beneficial for our employees, the organisation and the communities we serve.

Applications are reviewed on a daily basis, please do not delay the submission of your application as this is a rolling advert and will be closed once a successful candidate has been found.

Appointment to this post will be subject to the outcome of an Enhanced Disclosure obtained through the Disclosure and Barring Service. The Council is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
