In Kirklees we are focused on outcomes more than process and believe that to achieve the best outcomes for local citizens we need to be thinking “People, Place, Partners” and “working with rather than doing to.” We have a significant programme of investment in the physical infrastructure of our towns and villages that builds on our rich history. We are committed to an inclusive Kirklees and to ensuring that everyone benefits from improved outcomes.
Children and our services to young people are the heart of our vision and we are investing accordingly. Within our Children and Families Directorate, the Council and its partners are responding to our challenges and are determined to deliver long-term change with pace, determination and focus.
Improving outcomes for children and young people is our number one priority, and we have a rigorous and robust implementation plan to achieve this.
We have a range of qualified and unqualified roles across our Children's Social Work Teams, from Residential Care Officer to Independent Review Officers and we're looking for more dedicated people to join our fantastic teams.
