Social Work Jobs Fayre

Tuesday 23 May
5.30pm - 7.30pm
Riverside House (Café)
Rotherham, S65 1AS

We are holding another job fayre at the restaurant in Riverside House on Tuesday 23rd May from 5.30pm to 7.30pm where representatives from each of our teams will be there to talk about working at Rotherham in our Social Care and Early Help teams.

We are about to go out to advert for this year’s cohort of Newly Qualified Social Workers so we’d like to promote our offering at Rotherham to students who are considering where to start their careers, the Assessment Centre is planned to take place in early July.

We’re looking to attract the best candidates to come to Rotherham as an employer of choice and the feedback we’ve received from our last two cohorts of newly qualified staff is that Rotherham is a great place to work - where our teams are friendly and welcoming.

We pride ourselves on creating the right environment for our people to flourish and grow and are committed to providing quality supervision and development. Our commitment to 15 days training in Signs of Safety and Restorative Practise is testament to this as well as our low caseloads and great financial package.

With a clear career pathway in place from Level 1-3 Social Workers, there is an Advanced Social Worker in each team; and a specialist team of Practice Consultants providing opportunities to progress to management and strategic roles in the service.

We look forward to seeing you to talk about how to apply and give tips and advice about the recruitment process.
