We are passionate about supporting children and their families, ensuring that our social workers are equipped with the support needed to be where they are needed most - with families not files. Becoming a social worker in Carmarthenshire means joining a service which has strong foundations, a stable management team and a dedicated workforce.

We also recognise the immense value of experience and the complex work experienced Social Workers undertake.

Successful progression offers the higher range salary reward. 
We currently have some permanent and temporary opportunities across a range of teams from front line assessment teams to dedicated long term teams and 0-25 (Disability) Team located across a beautiful rural area as well as in bustling town areas such as Llanelli, Carmarthen and Ammanford.
