Join our growing team

We are going through a pivotal time of change. It's all part of our commitment to create a performance-led culture that puts the child at the centre of everything we do.

To achieve our ambitions we have put in place a radical restructure, an invigorated senior leadership team and a significant increase in our workforce so we can put more people on the ground, recruit talented managers and fulfill our vision; to be considered 'outstanding' by the children, young people and families who we support every day.

"The transition to Rotherham was so easy, I was really welcomed into the authority and I felt part of a team immediately"

Lindsey Allen - Social Work Practice Consultant

Our training programmes and clear development pathway mean there is real scope for progression for those who want to climb the career ladder. We are interested in hearing from social care practitioners who like us, want to commit to the highest standards and will do the right thing, at the right time for the right reasons.
