Middlesbrough is changing. With a thriving university and new high quality office buildings in the centre of town we are seeing large professional businesses moving into Middlesbrough and leisure facilities emerging to support the staff that they attract. Middlesbrough is growing and with easy access to beautiful coastline and the North Yorks Moors it is a great place to live and work.

With a complex mix of nationalities and ethnicities alongside a post-industrial history of chronic ill-health and some of the most deprived wards in England it is a challenging but extremely rewarding place to work as a Social Worker.

If you have experience in these areas or a keen interest in supporting and learning more about these needs, this could be the role you are looking for.

Due to the nature of this role you will hold an interesting and varied caseload so being adaptable and flexible is key to your success. In return you will receive superb training opportunities and career planning alongside, flexible working with the option of a blended working environment (home and office where appropriate). New staff joining Middlesbrough can expect a warm welcome from the team, directors and Chief Executive as well as a workplace buddy and full induction process.

At Middlesbrough, we truly live our values and incorporate them into everything we do. We are passionate about improving the lives of our residents, focused on achieving best outcomes and creative in the way we work with customers, ensuring they get the best support available.
