Exciting Challenge 

At Kirklees Council we are on a journey – and we are looking for dynamic, high-performing individuals to join a team that’s already transforming services for children and young people.

The council and its partners are changing and improving the ways they help children, young people and families to thrive. This is happening in line with our New Council approach and following our recent Ofsted Inspection.

We are investing additional resources into the Child Protection and Review Unit to improve outcomes for children and young people through robust challenge, planning, oversight and quality assurance.

We are looking to recruit to create capacity in our existing, stable Reviewing Service.

The challenge at present provides an exciting opportunity to make a substantial difference to the outcomes for children and young people of Kirklees.

We are looking for experienced Social Work professionals with current HCPC registration as well as substantial operational and management experience in statutory child care services. Commitment, resilience and a focus on the voice of the child are essential.

An enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check will be required for this job.  A conviction may not exclude candidates from appointment but will be considered as part of the recruitment process.
