Essex County Council is an award winning local authority and we are proud to have had winners at the national Social Worker of the Year Awards in 2014, 2016 and 2017.
Being one of the most populated counties in the UK, with communities as diverse as its geography, Essex can become the next step in your career whether you are looking for a role in adult social care or children and families.
Social work is a demanding, complex and ultimately fulfilling role. We fully recognise the importance of providing you with the tools and quality time to undertake direct relationship-based social work, to make real positive differences to the lives of our residents.
We are achieving this by supporting our social workers to deliver fantastic social work through our extensive CPD offer, which is expertly delivered by our BASW accredited Essex Social Care Academy. This includes regular training workshops, inspirational keynote speakers and engagement events, making Essex the best place to develop your knowledge and career as a valued social worker.
We recognise and celebrate inspiring and exceptional social work and can offer the variety where you can be challenged and supported, and really progress your career.
