Waltham Forest is an ambitious borough

For both our existing practitioners and new joiners, we want this to be a place where you can make your mark, develop your career and improve the lives of adults, children and their families. 

This website has been created to show just how ambitious we are. We hope you leave it today feeling enlightened, impressed and inspired to join us and help realise our hopes and dreams for those living in our borough. If you want to be part of a supportive, challenging and inspirational team, striving towards the shared purpose of achieving independence, choice and the best possible results for our service users, your ambition should be to join us. 

How far do our ambitions stretch?

We want Waltham Forest’s Social Services to be a career destination – a place where Social Workers know they can genuinely progress in their profession and achieve their personal goals. We want ambitious and creative Social Workers to help us become a centre of excellence and best practice; building on the strong foundations we have laid over the last 18 months.

How can we get there? With more ambitious, passionate and dedicated Social Workers like you, who will join us and complement our existing workforce. In return for your hard work, we’ll give you the time and active support you need to make a difference. Promoting creativity is at the heart of our agenda to develop Social Work, and means you will be encouraged to share ideas, bring about positive change and strive to continuously improve our services.
