The Spirit of Herefordshire – A place to thrive

Herefordshire is a great place to live with a beautiful and unique natural environment. We have ambitions for Herefordshire to be an exemplar of 21st century rural living where market towns and rural communities are properly valued and recognised for the contributions they make to the success of the county. We’re striving to create a thriving local economy which is sustainable, well connected and offers wellbeing across the whole of the county.

Improving our children’s services is our top corporate priority and with a non statutory improvement notice in place this role calls for a qualified social worker with experience of delivering significant and sustainable performance improvement. We’ve made an encouraging start, and with significant financial investment there is still plenty to do. Working alongside our improvement advisor you will have an opportunity to develop and lead a cohesive team that will define our vision for children’s services, consistently deliver the highest levels of social care and safeguarding practice, and improve outcomes for the children, young people and families of Herefordshire.

We’re looking for a fresh thinking and inspirational leader who will catch our ambition and passion for Herefordshire, its children and communities. We are proud of our stunning county and our exceptional staff and this is a fantastic opportunity to make your mark and help us take Herefordshire to the next level.
