Why choose Rotherham?

Hannah Winterman, May 22, 2017

If you thrive on challenge and want to come and work for an authority which is on the way up then we strongly encourage you to read on.

Rotherham has undergone massive changes in the past few years, with new senior leadership and major investment in staff marking a new and promising beginning for the council. These changes have included a whole new senior leadership team across the Council, including in our Children and Young People’s Services. As part of this reorganisation, we now have a clear vision for Rotherham to become a child friendly borough, to make it an outstanding place to work and grow up in.

To achieve this vision, we are recruiting five new lawyers to our ambitious legal team. These roles will be challenging, but for the right candidate they will offer the chance to gain unparalleled experience in an essential service, and an opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable children.

As well as promising high job satisfaction, these roles also offer a supportive and positive work environment, as recognised in a recent Ofsted inspection where inspectors found our Children’s Services to have a “positive organisational culture” and said “it is making continuous progress”.

Much of this progress is due to investment in training programmes and setting out career development pathways for all members of staff. From continuing your professional development with ongoing, practical training, to reaching senior management level, Rotherham really does provide a definite ladder to be climbed for those with talent and ambition.

Working here at Rotherham also offers an impressive benefits package including a generous £8,000 relocation package. With picturesque rural countryside, low house prices and excellent schools, Rotherham is a fantastic place to relocate your work and life to.

This role offers an exciting opportunity to any legal professional looking to gain further experience in a role where you can really make your mark. So come and join us at this pivotal time!
