Launch of Wokingham’s social care site marks the next step of their innovation journey
Sam Wilson, The 10th of January, 2017

We are delighted to announce the launch of the brand new Wokingham Borough Council Children’s Services recruitment site.

Having built a firm foundation of excellence in service delivery, Wokingham Borough Council have embarked on a journey that is transforming the way that their Children’s Services deliver care to the borough’s residents.

Their Innovation Programme has seen them embrace the Signs of Safety model of social care, encouraging their social workers to build collaborative relationships with service users. This approach allows them to effectively address the root of the problems at hand and deliver personalised support for sustainable change.

As they enter the next stage of their exciting journey, they are looking to bolster their ranks with social care professionals at a range of levels. Wokingham want ambitious and committed individuals to join a range of teams throughout Children’s Services. Each new addition will have the opportunity to shape the future of their team and the service as a whole.

Wokingham were very specific about the type of person they wanted and stated how important it was that the new recruits fit the ‘Wokingham mould’ in terms of attitude and commitment to the service. This was what inspired the ‘We are Wokingham…Are you?’ strapline, to truly capture the strength of Wokingham’s identity. This was supported by the site design, using real pictures of staff members to provide an insight into the service.

Here at Jobsgopublic, it is always exciting to have the opportunity to be part of a project like this. Not only did this represent the opportunity to help an authority like Wokingham transform their own service but the work their doing is likely to have a significantly wider impact on social care services across the UK.

Our Senior Client Partnership Manager, Abi O’Brien, has this to say on the project:
“Something that was clear from our first meeting with Wokingham was their passion for delivering the very best services for their residents. This is the driving force behind the transformation that is taking place throughout Children’s Services and what made it such a pleasure to work on. We feel that the recruitment site is amongst the best we’ve ever done and are really excited to see the results of this campaign.” 

As ever, we will be using a range of attraction methods to specifically target relevant candidates and ensure the success of this campaign. This includes the use of our bespoke executive resourcing service, SmartSearch, for the three senior roles.
