Supporting your career

In order to achieve the best possible outcomes for the residents of Medway, we firmly recognise that the focus must begin with our employees.

We have made it our upmost priority to create a supportive environment within which our employees feel that their voices are heard, opinions valued and needs are met. In return, we expect each member of every team to share in our commitment to the residents of Medway.

Each team is made up of a range of professionals including social workers and occupational therapists and support staff working alongside partners. This creates an incredible pool of resources and expertise, making positive outcomes all the more achievable.

Team structures are designed to make caseloads as manageable as possible and all employees are given regular supervision. A collaborative environment is promoted through our open plan offices in which ideas can be shared and everyone can benefit from the division’s rich and varied expertise and members of senior management are always available when needed.

We are committed to the professional development of our staff including post qualifying training as AMHP, BIA and Practice Educator Award. We invest in the development of students and newly qualified social workers,

At Medway Council, you can carry out your best work safe in the knowledge that there is a comprehensive support structure behind you.
