WREXHAM Council is encouraging people to apply for a number of current job opportunities in its Corporate Parenting Service.

The authority has posts for social workers, assistant team managers, family support workers and a recruitment and training officer.

A spokesman said: "In Wrexham County Borough Council we have a focus on ensuring excellent relationships.

"Doing what we do best, building relationships within the organisation with partners and between our practitioners, our children, our young people and their families is central to our work.

"Our children’s social care practice has undergone fundamental transformation over recent years and we are continuing to improve all aspects of service delivery.

"We’ve dedicated time and resources to creating the right conditions for social workers and social care practitioners to work flexibly.

"We’re proud to provide social workers and social care practitioners with the capacity they need to make a real difference to the lives of children, young people and their carers, as well as ensuring they themselves enjoy a positive work-life balance."

Jo Spender, head of service for corporate parenting, said: “In the Corporate Parenting Service we’re making good progress on our journey to deliver outstanding services to care leavers, looked after children, their families and carers.

"With the development of models of group, peer and reflective supervision, alongside manageable caseloads, we have created the right practice environment for our practitioners to excel – it’s a great time to be joining Wrexham Children’s Services.”

In the last year, Wrexham Council has seen the introduction of a new social work career path, excellent training opportunities, advanced technological approaches and a solid set of council values, all of which are transforming children’s social care.
