We believe that every child and young person deserves the best possible start in life. Our aim is for Edinburgh’s children to be safe, healthy, nurtured, educated, active and respected.
Our children’s practice teams are at the forefront of providing services to help children, young people and their families deal with difficult situations at various stages in their lives: whether in need of child protection; looked after at or away from home; or at risk of becoming excluded from school or becoming looked after. If you are a qualified Social Worker and registered with the SSSC or you are due to become so in the next few months then come and join us to help make our aim a reality.
We are working hard to make sure you always receive the support, training and development you deserve.
We have excellent career opportunities for social workers within Children and Families. Twenty-five percent of the practitioners in our Children and Families Practice Teams are senior practitioners and many specialist roles exist in fostering, adoption, early intervention and many other areas.

In line with our impending recruitment policy change that candidates that have care experience will be guaranteed an interview if they meet the minimum essential criteria detailed in the job specification, please feel free to note in your application form if you consider yourself to be care experienced as per the following definition.
‘Care experience is the term used to refer to anyone who was Looked After by their Local authority at any point during their childhood. This includes people who were ‘Looked After at Home’ under a legal order, or ‘Looked After Away From Home’ in a care setting such as foster care, kinship care or residential care.’

Where an individual has spent a continuous period of 3 months or more out with the UK in the last 5 years, an Overseas Criminal Record Check will be required. You will be required to provide this check. An unconditional offer of employment and commencement in the post will be subject to the outcome of both these pre-employment checks being deemed satisfactory.
We’re committed to creating a workplace culture where all our people feel valued, included and able to be their best at work, and we recognise the benefits that a diverse workforce with different values, beliefs, experience, and backgrounds brings to us as an organisation.
Our salary range typically reflects the initial starting salary and annually increases until it reaches the top of the range.
