Good social workers understand how to make a difference. Do you?

Children’s social care recruitment

Barking and Dagenham offers a unique set of opportunities and challenges. There is a rapidly increasing child population and an amazing diversity of cultures within a borough which is planning for a positive future of growth and development.

We aim to be proactive – keeping residents safe and building resilience and independence. As an important part of this, we are recruiting social workers to full time and part time positions in our Children’s Care and Support service to help children and their families with challenging needs.

We’re on a journey of doing what we do better to achieve better outcomes for children. We can’t make it easy but we can make it easier.

Make a real difference

You don’t have to have superpowers to work here but you do need to be keen to learn and develop as a social worker and be passionate about making a real difference for children in the borough.

The challenges start here.
