The career you want. The support you need.

We know that you want to achieve the best outcomes for children, young people and families. You want to help everyone you work with to build a great future. After all, that’s why you became a social worker in the first place. But we also know that you can only make that happen if you have great support – from your team, from your manager and from the authority you work with as a whole.

Here in Ealing, we’re committed to giving you that support at every level through an imaginative approach to training and development. We want ambitious and dedicated professionals to stay with us for the long term, so you can look forward to ongoing personalised training that’s built around your talents, interests and aspirations.

Ealing strives to be at the forefront of best practice and is seeking staff that share this aim. We have recently successfully bid for £3.5m from the Department of Education Innovation fund to transform outcomes for children in care and on the edge of care therefore this is a particularly exciting time to join our organisation.

We have a lot to offer. The Judges at the recent LGC Awards thought so as we were recently selected as Best Children’s Service 2014, beating off a lot of national competition. The Judges commented that the work in Ealing was "Outstanding and transforming children and young peoples lives”.

If you would like to join our award winning teams please view our current vacancies.

Service Manager and Principal Social Worker at Ealing Council Watch now


We’ve also developed a new service structure that puts our social workers at the heart of everything we do. But even this is just the beginning. With an enviable UK-wide reputation for innovative practice and winners of many prestigious awards (we were Finalists in the London Safeguarding Children Board Award 2013 for our Helping Families Programme in conjunction with the S. London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust as well as Winners of the LGC Award 2014, we’re constantly seeking out ways to improve as we strive to deliver the very highest standards. For us, that’s more than a mission. It’s a passion.


We’re looking for people who share that passion. People who can bring new ideas and fresh thinking. People who believe that by working together, sharing those ideas and supporting each other, we can achieve great things.

As the third largest borough in London, we can offer social workers the opportunity to quickly develop their experience with a wide-ranging, diverse caseload. Home to 306,000 people with a large and growing young population, Ealing is the third most diverse borough with over 70% of children and young people from black and minority ethnic backgrounds. This diversity makes Ealing a vibrant, multi-cultural and exciting place that is reflected in the schools, businesses, shops and restaurants across the area.
