Come work with What Works for Children’s Social Care

What Works for Children’s Social Care is a social purpose startup, dedicated to providing the best possible research to help children and families, social workers, and the social work system to thrive.

Just as our research utilises a wide range of methodologies, and covers a range of outcomes for children at all stages of their life and with a huge variety of levels of need, we need a diverse and talented team to help us achieve our mission.

So, whether you are a researcher or a social worker (or both), a programme manager or a product developer, an educator or an administrator, or something else entirely – or if you want to be – please consider the roles advertised below, or check back again soon.

All that we ask is that you are passionate about helping young people and their families, and believe in the impact that research can have. We know that great colleagues can come from anywhere – so whoever you are, we want to hear from you!
