'You have taken the first step on your journey to join our social work team of dedicated workers who always seek to embrace our vision of ‘putting children first’.

We are extremely proud that our model of practice embraces a truly integrated way of working across the spectrum of social care, early help, and health visiting services.

Equally alongside your work with colleagues, you will work collaboratively with our partners who seek to provide support to children and their families to receive the right help, at the right time and from the right person, all underpinned by a solid foundation of relationship-based practice.

To support families in Lincolnshire, supporting you as part of the workforce is crucial.  We recognise that social work is an exciting and dynamic profession, it can be challenging, but equally very rewarding.

Our social work teams are made up of social workers with a range of experiences from our social work apprentices to advanced practitioners, all supported by experienced social work managers.  In our teams you will receive regular personal / professional, and case supervision as well as group learning and reflective practice sessions.  You will also have access to tailored in-house training and accredited post qualifying modules and a range of employee benefits.

We are an outstanding Ofsted rated children’s service who have a strong commitment to making a difference to the lives of families both in Lincolnshire and more widely. We are delighted to be a wave 1 Pathfinder authority for the DfE implementing the recommendations from the Stable Homes Built on Love - making this is very exciting time to join us in Lincolnshire.

The work we do is changing lives. 

I would be thrilled if you take the next step and join us on your social work journey.'

Heather Sandy, corporate director of children’s services
