Work for them

Children and young people in Warwickshire are at the heart of all we do and we build strong relationships and connections with families to help them find long-lasting solutions. The needs of children and their families guide our social work practice as we work with them to achieve the best outcomes.

Social work in Warwickshire is rewarding and fulfilling and offers plenty of variety and challenge. The training and development opportunities available mean you can shape your own career, whether that’s becoming the best at what you do, progressing with your strengths and ambition or exploring interests in other areas, you’ll grow into who you want to be.

If you want to work for children and young people, view our current vacancies.

Young people's routes into Social Work

Fun Fact:
The young people in Year 11 right now across Warwickshire, some of them will be the Children's Social Workers, protecting and supporting children within in Warwickshire County Council by 2026.

As part of our long-term strategy to recruit the Social Workers of tomorrow, we have developed a guide for those thinking about entering the helping professions, particularly Children​s Social Work. The information provides details about routes into Social Work.

The Children & Families Service within the County Council are also happy to send representatives to support any schools and colleges at careers events or activities next year by coming and talking about a career in Social Work. If this would be helpful to your school or college, please contact by emailing
