Children's Services Careers

Find out where a career in Leeds could take you.

Welcome to the online home of recruitment for Children's Services. Here, we publish information about specific vacancies and the services and teams we are recruiting to. You can also discover what a career with us could offer by hearing from some of the fantastic people who work here, and by discovering more about our career development programmes.

It’s an exciting time of change for our services for children and young people, and a great opportunity to make a real difference to 180,000 children and young people’s lives. We’ve developed a vision for everyone growing up in the city, a Child Friendly City, centred around a clear set of outcomes, priorities and a straight-forward outcomes based methodology for measuring our progress. The 'Our Vision and Strategies' page under the related page tab below explains more about our goals and our journey towards achieving them.

There are few cities in the UK that can boast such a diverse and vibrant culture, which is what makes Leeds a great place to live and work. In Children’s Services we recognise the size and scale of the city and what that means for our colleagues, and especially for our front line teams. Our challenges are bigger and more complex than other cities and that’s why a career in Leeds provides such satisfaction and an obvious reason to stay.

Take a look at the Career Development links at the bottom of this page to read more about our personalised development and support programmes.

If you are interested in applying for any of the jobs on this site you will find job descriptions, structure charts and information about our services as you work your way around these pages.

I hope you enjoy learning more about Children’s Services and our story inspires you to come and work for us.
