We’re looking for:
- Someone compassionate and dedicated

This is what innovation looks like
Here at Lincolnshire County Council, we believe that children, young people and families deserve outstanding social care. Our high aspirations mean we’re now at the forefront of innovation in our field, and while we’ve made great strides, we want to achieve more. Much more. That’s why we’re part of an exciting project with Eileen Munro, rolling out the Signs of Safety framework across all service areas. And it’s why we’re also involved in the Partners in Practice programme – an influential partnership where we work with other top-performing local authorities to redefine what children’s services departments should look like. Bring your ideas and innovation to the table and you’ll transform the lives of children, not only here in Lincolnshire, but across the UK.
This is what Lincolnshire looks like
Good schools. Beautiful surroundings. Affordable housing. One of the main reasons to join Lincolnshire County Council is Lincolnshire itself.
