I have been a social worker at many local authorities across the UK and overseas in Australia and without a shadow of doubt, East Sussex is the best place I have worked

Nicola McGeown, Principal Social Worker

 

Join our Family Support team and embark on an exceptionally rewarding career working with children up to age 11. Work with a dynamic, supportive team in our easily accessible office located in the heart of Eastbourne, directly next to the station. Our team prioritises building relationships with families to reduce risks and support change over time. This includes direct work, assessments and complex care planning with children subject to child in need, child protection plans and legal proceedings. We achieve this by using skills honed by our renowned connected practice model, which underpins the work across our service.

At ESCC we provide extensive support to our social workers and deliver high quality relationship-based practice to our children and families. As a senior social worker you’ll be expected to provide your practice manager with support and be seen as a senior member of the team.

Work with an organisation who possess clear vision, strong leadership and help to create an environment of stability and security for families. We prioritise and focus on the quality of social work practice rather than processes and procedures.
