Children's Social Workers

Can you help build bright futures for children in Southampton?

We are building brilliant services for children and young people in the city, and this starts with our practitioners and managers. We are the Southampton Family, and we care for each other, offering strong support and strong challenge. If you join us, you will be part of an ‘almost fully permanent’ service.

We are excited to be the only local authority in our region offering a substantive systemic training pathway, leading, for those who want it, to being a fully qualified family therapist.

If you join our team will receive excellent support and an engaging learning environment with ‘widely available’ and ‘thoughtfully commissioned’ training opportunities to enable you to practice at your best.
