Social Services
Salary
Grade 8 (£34,373 - £38,553 per annum) 37 hours per week

It’s no secret that, with its roots in heavy industry and, as the birth place of the NHS, Blaenau-Gwent and its people have a proud community heritage.

Nothing stays the same of course.

Heavy industry in the area has gone and the county can now be proud of the beautiful green spaces which form the backdrop to the short commute from one side of the borough to the other. Similarly, the meaning of ‘community’ has shifted and adapted to reflect the changing demographic of the population.

But, at its core, Blaenau-Gwent Council remains committed to its vision to be ‘a better place to live and work.’ Collectively, we recognise that we have a commitment to ensuring the wellbeing of future generations; we want our children and their families to have opportunities to enjoy an exciting and aspirational future.

We are therefore seeking creative and motivated social workers to join our Children’s Social Services’ department.
