We are a family friendly employer with agile working conditions and the latest kit to support your work. We provide every social work practitioner with a laptop and smart phone that are easy to use, helping us all to stay in touch and keep connected.
We are proud that our colleagues choose to stay with us. Alongside being valued, working like a family, we give comprehensive individual support with emphasis on teamwork. This brings strong connections and a sense of belonging which develops our skills and knowledge to be effective in our practice.
We have manageable caseloads, and we are committed to continuing our focus on working with the right children at the right time. We work closely with families, carrying out visits and spending quality time with children, getting to know them to help their situation improve.
We want our employees to feel engaged and involved and understand that communication is key to this. We have a variety of communication methods for sharing key messages with our staff, and all staff receive regular briefings from their manager as well as information from:
All new employees receive a structured induction period that ensures they can understand the organisation and their role in it.
The induction process is about helping new employees to feel welcome, be confident to ask questions and enjoy a positive start to their career with Cheshire East Council:
Employees will be provided with opportunities to shadow and co-work as part of their induction where possible.
Employees are invited to the “Welcome to Cheshire East” sessions hosted by the Principal Social Worker. These provide an opportunity to ask questions and find out more about the organisation, opportunities and the “Together for Children” vision that underpins our work.
We want our employees to learn and develop in their role and feel that they are valued which is why we have a wide range of learning and development opportunities available to “Grow our Own” including:
Some courses are essential to support your induction, confidence, and practice and these will be arranged in advance of your start date. Many of these courses take place as e-learning modules, others may be face-to-face.
