Working for Children's Social Care

Our workforce is our greatest asset. Together we'll achieve the best outcomes for children and families and we've been rated 'Good' by Ofsted.

There has never been a better time to join Wandsworth as a social worker.

We’re delighted to have just been rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted for the services we provide to children and young people.

Our values inspire our Outstanding Practice Framework, which creates the context for our social workers to build relationships with families that bring about change to support children to live at home wherever possible. ‘Support, challenge, appreciation and kindness’ were seen and heard in every conversation with a range of staff, managers and senior leaders according to our report, and our ‘healthy culture’ was lauded by inspectors.

Our social workers are at the heart of our success, and we’re looking for Social Workers who share and are excited by our vision. Come and be part of our success.
