Be a social worker in Bristol within our Children's and Families service

Together, we want Bristol to be a city of hope, where no one's left behind and everyone is treated fairly with the same life chances.

Bristol offers a wide range of opportunities for social workers, whether you're just starting your career, looking for a new challenge, or wanting to broaden your knowledge and expertise.

Salaries start from £34,800 with benefits including a good relocation package, local government pension scheme, 25 days annual leave and full membership to Research in Practice
