Job description

Be at the heart of it.

In Bradford, we are passionate about improving outcomes for our young people and families and getting families the help they need quickly. To achieve this, we’re moving towards an approach aligned to the David Thorpe way of working. This is a rewarding social worker model and helps children from that very first phone call.

Here in Bradford, we lead from the front and we know our most valuable resource is our staff, helping us to meet the needs of our communities. We have built a strong culture of listening to our staff and involving them to ensure every child receives the right help.

This is a newly created role. To be eligible, you will need to be a Qualified Social Worker at Level 3. Bradford is a great place to build your career. You’ll receive an extensive training and support package that will help you develop as a professional, a manageable caseload that will enable you to make a difference and the backing of a supportive leadership team.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion is at the heart of what we do as a Council and the people we support. We have a number of self-directed Staff Networks (Disability, LGBTQ+, Race Equality, Women’s Voice, Working Carers and Young Persons) which assist in providing a voice and support mechanism to colleagues.

The RESPECT Allyship Programme is also available to all staff, which offers opportunity to learn more about the diverse communities & groups, and provides additional benefits and resources to its members. This is part of the RESPECT Campaign, which is the Council’s Internal Equalities Vision for staff and its ambition to build a truly inclusive workforce, where everyone can be their true selves at work.
