Why it’s a great time to take your next children’s social work assignment in Hampshire County Council

Yvette Stanley, Ofsted’s National Director for Social Care, recently said in her report of Hampshire County Council’s children’s services “this is a magnificent achievement, which reflects the hard work and tenacity of all those working in children’s services at Hampshire County Council and families across the county have had a positive difference made to their lives because of the help they’ve received”. 

This really is a great time to be joining the Council on both a permanent basis or if you are looking for your next locum social work role.  As an Agency Talent Partner for the Council, I’d be delighted to discuss with you your current and future career aspirations, but here are just three reasons why you should be considering Hampshire CC as your next move!

*Hampshire Children’s Services are outstanding

The County Council welcomed the outcome of Ofsted’s inspection in May, which resulted in a rating of outstanding across all areas – which means children in Hampshire’s care are safe and well looked after.

Inspectors reported how the County Council’s social workers are highly skilled at building meaningful relationships with children and that children in care benefit from high-quality support.

Ofsted also credited the County Council’s strong political and corporate support and how well-targeted financial investment has enabled the Service’s leadership team to implement an ambitious transformation programme.

Among the many strengths highlighted in the report, Hampshire’s Children’s Services are recognised for having; high quality services, tailored and highly effective help from intensive support workers, social workers sustaining consistent and enduring relationships with children, good support for 16 and 17 year olds who are homeless or at risk or becoming homeless, dedicated and effective support for care leavers.

*Be the first to hear – First for Hampshire County Council locum jobs

Connect2Hampshire is very different to other recruitment agencies.  We are public sector owned, which means we are more focused on finding you the right role in Hampshire to deliver the best customer experience possible, rather than putting you in a job you will not enjoy.

Being on site is an important factor for us and I think it is a real benefit being able to pop to see a manager or one of our social workers as, it makes us feel more like we are part of the team.

By working through Connect2Hampshire, you will be notified of the job opportunities before any other recruitment agency is even aware.  Put simply, registering with us, you get first dibs.  Once registered, you could be working within a week, once we have ensured your vetting and checks compliance.
