Benefits

Whether you are an experienced professional or just embarking on your career, your pay range will be competitive and reviewed in the light of your progress.

The salary range for social workers is £27,945 - £35,055 (pro rata for part-time positions) and is inclusive of Inner London weighting.

Approved social workers receive a supplement of £1,500 per annum. In addition, from the day a social worker joins, they are eligible for a zones 1 and 2 travel allowance.

Add to this opportunities for flexible working, a generous benefits package, manageable caseloads and the support of a strong IT network, and you see the advantages of our approach.

Learning and Development

Throughout your time here you will be constantly learning. You will be challenged by your work, encouraged to try new approaches and supported to maximise your potential.

We will invest in providing the resources you need to develop professionally, through a combination of informal on-the-job and formal development programmes.

We make time and financial support available for social work staff studying for Post Qualifying Courses and the Practice Teaching Award.

We provide an in-house training programme, and offer many focused learning opportunities including accredited management development and leadership programmes, a black and minority ethnic staff mentoring scheme, approved social worker training, and child and adult protection training.

We are active members of the regional Skills for Care and Children’s Workforce Development Council networks and use these to contribute to and access regional learning and development initiatives and funding.
