Belief Injection System

Picture a boy with dreams of working as a mechanic. Now imagine he’s traumatised by a troubled upbringing. Confidence is in short supply. A toy car, and a good listener could be all he needs to get back on track. It takes time to discover the details that matter. And it takes focus to help the person behind the condition. So at Rutland, we pride ourselves on committed, continuous care.  We get closer.

We get closer to service users. Our social workers see cases through from referral to resolution. And they get closer to the big decisions. They lead strategy, policy and operations and orchestrate partners to deliver services. All with the support of an open, encouraging team. We may be England’s smallest council, but as the Rutland motto goes: ‘multum in parvo’.We deliver ‘much in little’.

“We are looking for a particular mindset in those joining our leadership team: solution-focused and highly motivated by the challenge of carrying a complex portfolio of both strategic and operational responsibilities.”
