jobs description

Our Duty and Advice Service is open 24 hours, 7 days a week, all year. The service is the first point of contact for all new referrals to children's services, including Early Help. Duty and Advice is part of a bigger service CASP (Children Assessment support and Prevention Services).

We asked our staff Why should someone want to work in social care for Leicester City Council as opposed to somewhere else? They said

We rise to the challenges we face

Leicester is a vibrant and diverse city. Naturally that means there are many people that need our support for many different reasons. Its challenging, but we know we can help. Thats because we have honed our practice and our processes over many years. We use evidence, and we form the right partnerships to have the biggest effect. We decide what were going to do, how were going to do it, and, above all, implement it well, with time for the change to be understood, and take real effect. And we use this stability as a way to build better... connections across this compact, easy to get around area to better know the people and families we help. When we put it all together, we can give lasting help, not long-term reliance.

At Leicester, youll have the chance to do the job right.

We give you the backing you need

We have a wide range of training for social workers at every stage of their career. But more importantly, we can give them the time and encouragement to maximise what they can learn. Thats part of what helps our social workers move onwards in their career. Its also partly due to our determination to as far as possible - grow our own. Sometimes form newly qualified right through to management. Thats because it works it creates people that know our systems and city. Day-to-day, and year-to-year, there is always someone to talk to give professional support and advice, or simply to be a friendly listener. Thats part of our duty of care to you. We also give as much flexible and hybrid working as possible, look after your wellbeing and - wherever we can keep your caseloads in manageable limits.
