Why Work in Cumbria?

Skip main menu

Cumbria County Council works to build pride in our diverse region. All of our services share the same basic principle: put simply, we strive to make a positive difference to the people and communities we serve.

Social work plays a key role in this and is highly valued throughout the council.   We support our social workers to grow their careers and fulfil their potential so that they, in turn, can best nurture our service users.
