West Sussex County Council
Here at West Sussex County Council we are ambitious for our children and our workforce. We’re aware that our children’s services are not consistently delivering the quality of care that we would want for all our children and we are laying the foundations for a wide-scale programme of improvement.
Social work is a challenging job and we recognise that to achieve excellent outcomes for our children, it is important to us that our staff and our children know that we are putting children first. We have an improvement plan in place to focus on key areas we know we are not doing well. We want to make sure that we have a social care workforce which is sufficient in numbers, skills and experience to deliver high quality and consistent care for our children. Our ambition is to reduce social worker caseloads and we are investing further in our workforce with new provisions such as our Recruitment and Retention (R&R) scheme.
This is an exciting time to join West Sussex County Council because you can make a difference and be part of what is going to be a positive journey of improvement. If you have talent, ambition and a desire to achieve excellent outcomes for children then we will support you to achieve your career aspirations.
