The way we work in a person-centred way connecting with people and connecting with communities through our Deal for Adult Social Care and Health is renowned and respected nationally.  Our staff are as important as our customers.  We know that happy teams make the best teams and so we provide a supportive workplace where you’ll be encouraged to develop professionally.  We offer flexible working and are happy to talk with you about working hours which fit with the requirement of the service and also your home life.  You’ll also benefit from being able to work from several bases across the borough, as well as the opportunity to work from home where appropriate. 

In our first Workplace Wellbeing Charter accreditation we were recently awarded excellence in Mental Health, Absence Management, Health and Safety, and Leadership standards, evidencing how much we care about supporting staff wellbeing, especially that of our great social workers.

Wigan Council strives in attracting, to recruit and retain high calibre skilled staff which the people of the borough voiced in the Deal 2030. We are an inclusive Council who trains and develops our staff in a positive learning environment.
