Qualified Social Worker - Frontline Children Services - Berkshire

Qualified Social Worker – Frontline Children Services – Berkshire


Sheldon Phillips work with Qualified Social Workers across the UK and we want to change the way we recruit good people.  Our job adverts pull no punches and tell you exactly what you need to know - BEFORE you apply.  We currently require a Qualified Social Worker to join an Children with Disabilities Team in Berkshire.
Locum work pays very good money, but you must be fully prepared for very busy working environments.  This Local Authority is looking for excellent staff to make sure that supervision and case loads improve over time.


This Local Authority in Berkshire will provide a high hourly rate but you must be prepared for:

• Busy and heavy work loads
• Sometimes having to work unsociable hours
• Sporadic supervision due to low staffing numbers
• An experienced Line Manager to help and support you as much as they are able


For this post in Berkshire you will need to be registered with the HCPC, hold a Social Work Qualification and have a minimum of 12 months post qualifying experience in a similar role.  The local authority is improving greatly, so over the length of your contract you will see a reduction in case loads and an increase in supervision. 
You will be part of a small team in Berkshire working to ensure that the needs of children and their families are met.  This will sometimes mean that you may accrue hours over and above your contract, however you will be able to use those hours as TOIL.


In return you will receive:

• An Hourly rate up to £39 which reflects the busy work load
• A range of payment options including LTD Company and Umbrella
• A dedicated Recruitment Specialist to offer expert career advice and support you
• Access to FREE CPD Training for your HCPC Registration
