Rhondda Cynon Taf is pleased to offer an opportunity for Social Workers within our Children’s Services Department.

All our practitioners have the chance to influence the development of our work and are supported by a strong, experienced management team both at Strategic and Operational levels

We recognise that social work is professionally and personally challenging and demands considerable levels of skill, commitment, and enthusiasm. We offer a dedicated in house Learning and Development Centre which actively supports practitioners at each level to maintain their skills and Continuous Professional Development.

We are committed to achieve the aspirations of the Social Work career pathway in Wales and have for some time established a small number of Consultant Social Worker posts in Children’s Services.

Our Children’s Services Department has benefitted from comprehensive and significant investment in recent years, and we have responded to this by strengthening preventative services which aims to add capacity to the front line.

The Service is divided into two areas, East and West. The East office is based in Ty Trevithick, Abercynon and the West office is based in Tonypandy, Rhondda.

We expect our practitioners to have a sound understanding of the practice implications of the Children Act, the Social Services and Wellbeing Act and other relevant legislation, be up to date with emerging issues and have experience of or an interest in working within childcare. Committed to anti-oppressive practice, successful candidates will bring strong assessment, communication, and planning skills.

Those starting a Social Work career will also be supported to attend out First Year in Practice peer support programme which aims to bridge the gap between qualifying and consolidating practice.

We will look to you to manage a defined caseload while building and maintaining links with partner agencies. You must possess a professional recognised Social Work qualification and be expected to be registered as a ‘Social Worker’ with Social Care Wales on appointment.
