Job description

About The Service
Cardiff are seeking to build upon the success of recruiting social workers by ensuring that we have the very best principal social workers to coach and support our workers, enabling them to grow and develop. In pursuit of this we have increased the number of principal social workers are seeking to recruit permanent workers with a passion and drive to delivery only the 'very best' service to our children and their families and carers.

The proverb ' it takes a village to raise a child ' is as relevant to a major city such as Cardiff as it is anywhere - the challenge is to identify, engage and work collaboratively with our communities to achieve this. Cardiff's locality model allows social workers and support staff to work within the local communities and get to know the specific needs of the communities we support. Working in partnership with other statutory and non-statutory agencies and the 3 rd sector we provide the right level of assistance to our families at the right time, empowering families to reach out to these support networks in order to reduce the long term needs of individuals and the communities they live in.
