Cambridgeshire County Council
£34,408 - £37,108
Closing date:
28 August 2022 at midnight
We’re advancing, join us on our journey.

The pandemic has been a real challenge, maybe the hardest in our history, but we’ve advanced as a result.

We are committed to our Social Workers, and we want to give them the opportunity to progress while feeling safe in their practice.

• Offering a comprehensive Learning & Development programme, we provide opportunities to develop specialisms like Practice Educator and AMHP courses.

• We are a learning organisation, and we know that sometimes the best learning comes when you don’t get it right. We turn mistakes into positive learning experiences and are always supporting each other.

• We have committed to enhancing Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI). Having a diverse workforce is of the utmost importance especially in terms of shared learning, discussing caseloads and achieving the best outcomes for the people who use our services.

• We are currently working to a hybrid model, with part-remote and flexible options available in line with our service needs. This gives our Social Workers a quiet space and plenty of time for reflection. It has also increased our Social Workers autonomy and has a positive impact on wellbeing and work-life balance.

• We have supportive Team Managers to help facilitate a culture of trust and autonomy whilst supporting Social Workers to thrive in their roles.

We’ve changed a lot but one thing’s for sure, we still love Social Workers. Join us and be part of an authority that has accepted the challenge to constantly improve.

Making the move to Cambridgeshire County Council comes with a range of benefits including a competitive salary, a relocation package of up to £8,000, generous retention payments*, plus tonnes more – see the attached benefits brochure for more information.

We know that it is hard to fit in the time and space to think, discuss and reflect on the work we are doing while having a busy workload, so we have launched 6 days of protected time each year to enable our Social Workers to maintain their Continuous Professional Development.

We offer a generous mileage allowance of 45p per mile, (first 10,000 miles, and 25p per mile, thereafter). We don’t want our Social Workers facing the additional financial burden of fuel prices increasing, so an additional fuel allowance of £30 per month has been agreed for the 2022/23 financial year for those driving over 300 business miles per month.

This is a rolling campaign, and we will review applications daily so please don't wait for the closing date to apply, we want to speak to you now! You can get in touch with us today by calling Paige on 01223 699263. Alternatively, you can email us on or visit our website for more information.

We also have Senior Social Worker vacancies. To enquire about these, email us on the details above.

If you are experiencing technical difficulties with the website, please call the Helpdesk on 0300 126 7777.

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.

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.

Please be aware we are unable to offer roles to overseas candidates, or candidates requiring sponsorship. You must be eligible to work in the UK.

*Retention payments are available to Social Workers and Senior Social Workers in Mental Health, Adults Community Care Team, Transfer of Care Team, Learning Disability Partnership and 0-25 including Young Adults Team and Children’s Disability Services
