Dr Lee-Anne Farach, Director of People:
Let’s give young people the best start in life.
Thank you for your interest in children’s social worker opportunities with Medway Council.
I am proud to be the Director of People at Medway. Medway continues to put children at the centre of everything we do. We strive to ensure children have a good early years’ experience and are offered age-appropriate services through our Family Solutions service. Our education sector offers a great learning experience to our children and young people and our youth service provides innovative solutions. We are committed to supporting our most vulnerable children be that working with our partners to ensure the health and wellbeing of our younger residents or through the special education needs and disability offer – all of this adds up to Medway being a truly Child Friendly place.
We have accelerated with our improvements following our Ofsted inspection in July 2019. We have had four monitoring visits from Ofsted, all stating that Medway knows itself well.
The leadership and management of Medway Children’s Services is committed to excellence and a strength-based model of social work practice. It is by focussing on the strengths of our children and young people and supporting good social work practice, that Medway has come so far on its improvement journey.
Medway is an exciting place to work and will offer you a range of challenges and experiences. We offer an excellent recruitment package, manageable workloads, a comprehensive learning and development programme and opportunities to progress your career with support from managers who have been supporting Medway’s most vulnerable children and families for many years.
