Take the first step

We have recently improved and streamlined our recruitment process for social workers, so it’s easy to view and apply for current vacancies online. 

Using our online recruitment system 

Once you’ve decided which position or positions you’re interested in you can apply through our online recruitment system. 

We have set up one vacancy for all positions to make the process as easy as possible. All you will need to do is document which role and area you’re interested in.

Click on the links below to go directly to the application process:

Each vacancy will hold a job profile. Please read the job profile carefully before making your application.

You’ll be asked to fill out an online full application form or submit a CV and short application form as the first step of the process. There will be timescales and full details of the assessment and selection process in the application information.

We use cookies to recognise you when you login. If you have problems, make sure your cookies are 'enabled'.


Now, you are also welcome to submit a speculative CV for us to review. 

Send it to CSWrecruitment@gloucestershire.gov.uk

The Roles page will show you the teams we recruit into.
