Candidate Benefits

Get the specialised support you need to make the most of your career

We understand the stress that social workers can sometimes suffer, so we’ve created a supportive environment that helps you flourish in your profession.

Dedicated consultants with specialist industry knowledge

Each of our candidates has a dedicated consultant: they will support, mentor and reassure you throughout the recruitment process, giving you a reliable point of contact, including regular face-to-face meetings as your assignment progresses.

Our consultants are experts in social work recruitment, many with prior experience in the industry, and all are extensively trained to understand the challenges and rewards of the profession.

You’re more than just a number to us

We’ll work closely with you to understand your needs before finding a placement, and will arrange regular catch-up meetings afterwards, to ensure your working experience is positive.

We don’t work by filling regional quotas. Instead, we’ve created a pool of specialist social work recruiters who work on a national scale to find a position that’s right for you.

Helping you develop professionally

We want our qualified social workers to feel just as supported in training and development as their permanent colleagues. Our flexible, subsidised training opportunities are designed to help you keep moving towards your career goals.

Created in partnership with Elevate Training and Development, our tools let you record your ongoing CPD activities, and give access to a huge selection of learning resources. Because our training is all through an advanced online platform, you won’t lose money by having to train during work hours.

  • CPD training
  • Management training


We are a passionate advocate for our candidates, and put your professional development at the heart of our work.

We care about your wellbeing
