Apply for this job

Could you stay away from home 3-nights per week to earn £40-£43/hr?

How about working in a local authority rated ‘Outstanding’ by OFSTED and carrying 17 cases with minimal court work?

Frontline are recruiting experienced children’s social workers to join frontline Child Protection, Assessment, and Court teams in specific locations across the UK.

Our local authorities pay fantastic rates due to their rural locations, or lack of major cities or population centres to draw social workers from. This means they have to attract experienced live-away social workers from further afield- these rates are not ‘danger money’ for going to a badly managed service with unrealistic caseloads.

Our local authorities are recruiting across its frontline teams to keep caseloads manageable and allow social workers to invest the proper amount of time and resources into each case.

Candidates should have at least two years’ experience in frontline social work. Social workers with 4-5 years+ experience will be eligible for senior rates which are amongst the highest rates in the UK.

All candidates must be able to provide references to their competencies in core Child Protection or Assessment duties.

If you are looking for an opportunity that offers career development, supportive management, and a good working environment - then this is the role for you.

Frontline social workers within this authority will receive the following benefits:

  • Competitive hourly rates
  • Professional CV design & formatting
  • Dedicated consultant with a max. of 20 social workers (other agencies manage 50+ per consultant)
  • Express and hassle-free compliance service (can be processed in 2 working days)
  • PAYE payroll available
  • Flexible working
  • The biggest ‘Refer a Friend’ bonus in social work - £500 per referral (open to everybody, not only Frontline social workers)

As a Children’s Social Worker, you will be:     

  • HCPC registered
  • Eligible to work in the UK
  • Car Driver Essential.

If this role isn’t right for you then we also offer a £500 referral bonus to any successful recommendations that we go on to place in a role.
