Why choose Rutland?

We're different. If you're looking for an opportunity to be part of a team of social workers who work together, where your skills and experience really can make a significant difference to both children and families and your colleagues, and where there really is work life balance, then Rutland is the place for you.

We offer manageable caseloads, social care learning events, and regular reflective supervision to focus on you. We encourage continually improving practice to ensure children's interests are always protected and promoted. To support you further, your Social Work England registration and DBS costs are covered by us. We can also provide financial relocation assistance, if you're moving to join Rutland (subject to management approval).

Rutland is located in the East Midlands, within an hour of Leicester, Nottingham, Peterborough, and Northampton. Voted Britain's second-best rural place to live in March 2018, it's easy to get to, with both the A1 (north-south) and A47 (east-west) passing through the county.

Successful applicants will be subject to an enhanced check by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
