Working Together, For Norfolk

Do you want to make a difference to the children and young people of Norfolk?

At Norfolk County Council, we know what’s important to you; feeling supported and a team that works together. Our social workers have told us they work with some great people and together they make a difference to the children and young people of Norfolk.

We have ambitious plans to reshape how we work with families, placing practitioners and relationship-based practice at the heart of what we do. Through Vital Signs, our vision for Children in Norfolk, we use Signs of Safety practice to work with whole family networks and across the whole system to support families to build on their strengths and achieve the best possible outcomes.

We’ve already taken some innovative steps, for example introducing our one front door service known as the Children’s Advice and Duty Service which enables us to work alongside children, families and professionals from the start until they no longer need our support, using a conversational, coaching approach.

We can offer you:
• A competitive salary up to £40,875
• £2k welcome payment* to thank you for joining us
• Up to £10 relocation package
• Car leasing scheme
• Flexible working
• Collaborative and relationship-based practice for better outcomes
• Clear career pathways and excellent development opportunities
• A supportive work environment including a commitment to regular supervision and learning and development opportunities and 1 day per month of work time protected and ring fenced for professional development (full time equivalent)
• A proactive Social Care Academy designed with the social worker in mind

You should love the place you work and Norfolk is simply beautiful; with stunning beaches, many charming and picturesque towns and villages, world-class cultural events, an affordable lifestyle, and the Norfolk Broads right on your doorstep, Norfolk is the ideal place to achieve, your work-life balance.

If you’re an experienced children’s Social Worker and want to work together with us to shaping the future of Children’s Services in Norfolk, we want to hear from you.
