Search on for social workers

Created on 16/11/2020 @ 10:59
The search is on for social workers to with families in the area as part of a recruitment drive by Powys County Council.

Since the Children's Services department was taken out of "enhanced" levels of monitoring by Care Inspectorate Wales in September, the council is attempting to increase social worker numbers.

Cllr Rachel Powell, Cabinet Member for Children's Services says: "Children’s Services is a fast-improving service with a clear vision in working in collaboration with families, safeguarding young people and strongly ensuring that the voice of the child is central.

"The service has been hugely creative and responsive, but remains focused in a shared vision for the future benefits of Children and Young people in Powys. Our future really is, very exciting.  

“If you would like a new opportunity to work within a highly motivated and enthusiastic team making a difference, to the lives of children and young people across the county, then we would love to hear from you."
Following a CIW performance evaluation and inspection in September this year, the inspectorate reported: “The local authority has made significant progress since our last inspections in October 2018.

"The restructure of children’s services to include early help, intervention and preventative services along with a Signs of Safety approach is enabling social workers and support staff to maintain a strength-based focus when engaging with young people and families.
“The local authority recognises supporting its workforce is business critical and it has a clear focus on recruitment, retention and workforce development. All staff benefit from the opportunity to develop their knowledge, skills and careers.”
