Caritas Social Work
We give our applicants the tools to make a real difference to people’s lives
Who do we work with?
We are a preferred partner to over 150 local authorities across the UK, as well as NHS trusts, not-for-profit and private organisations.
We help highly motivated and passionate social work staff to find the locum, fixed term or permanent position that is right for them.
Demand for candidates is high because of a skills shortage across the industry, and there’s a broad range of positions available for social workers with different specialisms and levels of experience. Whether filling a vacant role or joining a transitionary team, we can support you in finding a role where you can make a real, positive change to people’s lives.
Our vacancies include positions in both adult and children’s social care services.
We take pride in our consultative approach, building a rapport with each candidate in order to help identify placements that are perfectly suited to both your experience and career development.
You will have one dedicated consultant looking after you throughout your job search, and beyond, checking in with you throughout the lifespan of your placement. They’ll find out what drives you and where your talents lie, and they’re motivated by helping you take your career forward the way you want.
If you’re currently applying for locum social work positions, we want you to feel as supported as your permanent colleagues. You can talk to us about stress management and HR-related issues, or use our innovative wellbeing package to help manage your daily life.
Caritas has created a wellbeing booklet, as well as a poster that you can print off and put up in your home or workplace. Additional training is provided to our long term candidates. We encourage our candidates to inform us of training to help them develop their knowledge further. This is approved by the directors and funding is provided on completion of the whole course. This is in line with CPD.
