Working with children, young people and their families is one of the most important and rewarding jobs - the right person can make the biggest difference.

To achieve the best for our children and young people we need great staff who are committed, creative and confident.

I know that you will find that Newcastle is a friendly and supportive service.  We want you to succeed in your work, be ambitious in your career and support  children and families from across our city.

We have high expectations of our staff and the work they do and we encourage a culture of innovation, reflection and challenge. We also ensure our staff feel supported and valued and have invested in a new Centre of Excellence to drive professional development from ASYE to senior manager.

We are a  Proud, Fair and Ambitious council and these values are intrinsic to everything we do in Children’s Social Care.  These values set the standard for the services we provide and how we treat each other and the children, young people and families we work with.

This is an exciting time to join us as Newcastle is continues on a journey of transformation.  We want to improve outcomes for our children and young people and their families and we are embedding a new relational family valued approach to social work.  Because of our work and vision we are  be part of the DFE’s Strengthening Families and Protecting Children, and have received additional funding to partner with Leeds City Council to embed our ambitious plans. If you want to be part of this journey now is the time to join us. 

On this website I hope you will get a sense of the service - who we are, how we work and what you can expect from us.

I am proud to lead this service and confident that we can offer you a career to be proud of too.

Succeed with Newcastle

We want staff who are ambitious for the children and young people they support. 

We provide a variety of opportunities, training and experiences that will help your Children's Social Care career flourish. 

The Way We Work

In Newcastle, staff across Children's Social Care work closely together to ensure children, young people and their families receive the right support at the right time.

We believe that families are our most important resource and we work to ensure that when families are experiencing difficulties and a child within the family is vulnerable, the support that is put in place works with the family to find sustainable solutions and empowers that family to find the strength to change.

 

Choose Newcastle

Proud, fair and ambitious. These are our values at Newcastle City Council.

Newcastle City Council is passionate about giving every child in the city the best start in life and our Children's Social Workers play an important part in helping reach this ambition for some of our most vulnerable children..
