We're on a journey to become an authority that delivers good and excellent services to children and their families from integrated prevention and earliest help services through to Children’s Social Care.
West Sussex County Council takes children's social care seriously. We've had significant financial investment in our service and as a result are looking to recruit new and experienced social workers.
We are currently looking to fill a number of positions, including:
- Experienced social workers
- Practice managers
On Thursday 29 June we are hosting a recruitment event where you can come along and see what West Sussex has to offer you as an employer.
Date: Thursday 29 June
Time: 5.00pm to 7.00pm
Location: County Hall North, Parkside, Chart Way, Horsham, RH12 1XH (free parking and refreshments available)
At the event you will be able to talk to:
- Annie MacIver - Director of Family Operations, West Sussex County Council
- Catherine Watkins - Principal Social Worker, West Sussex County Council
- Service Leads
- Practice managers
- Social workers
There will be short talks from Annie MacIver and other members of the team to give you a real insight into what happens when you join the West Sussex Children’s Social Care team.
You will have the opportunity to discuss which area of children's services you're most interested in and hear about the best route into working with us. If you are interested in joining us but can't attend the event, please visit our website.
West Sussex is a large authority which offers lots of opportunities for development and progression but with a ‘small authority feel’ because we know and value each member of our team.
