Benefits: Stockport Council offers a wide range of benefits including: flexible working, 27 days holiday for new starters, a car lease, and bike loan scheme, as well as a wide range of employee discounts.
If you join Stockport Family as a locality social worker, you will have the opportunity to work with children throughout their time with statutory social care services.

Stockport family model
In Stockport, we believe that relationships should shape the service delivery model, not the point a child is at in services. We aim for children and families to have just one social worker whilst they are in service. We will support you developing these great working relationships by investing in your support, training and development.
Stockport Family is committed to working in an integrated way using a restorative approach to enable children and families to remain together wherever possible, and where this is not possible to ensure that children are safeguarded and able to achieve the very best outcomes. You will be passionate about relationship-based social work, proud of your profession and able to reflect and think creatively about how you can build relationships to make a difference with children and families.
You will work within a locality alongside colleagues from health and early years, as well as borough-wide specialist services so that you can access the support, and advice you need easily to deliver the best interventions for children and families, in a system where we share problems and look for solutions together rather than try to off-load them to others.
Our relentless focus is on practice and outcomes for children and families, and you will play an important part in delivering outstanding practice and ensuring that children and families are at the heart of all decision-making and service delivery.
What we can offer you:
You will receive regular supervision, access to training and development opportunities and work in a supportive culture where we are ambitious about delivering excellent social work practice and supporting you to be the very best you can be. We offer employees flexible working to support work life balance as this helps us have a happy and stable workforce.
