"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 organisation and be based in the heart of Eastbourne at easily accessible offices, located directly next to the train station. At ESCC we provide extensive support to our social workers and deliver high quality relationship-based practice to our children and families.

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.

We are looking for candidates who are able to engage effectively using creativity, compassion and authority to overcome resistance and build relationships. Undertake assessment and analysis to a high standard on complex cases informed by research and theory and linking to child’s plan and be able to promote and provide guidance and challenge on positive approaches to diversity in the organisation addressing discrimination.
