You will visit them every 6 weeks within the first year of being in care and then every 12 weeks after this time.

This can include across Country visits.

*Handling a manageable caseload
*Flexible working to manage your own diary
*Daily Pay rates

For this position you must also have:
*a degree or masters in Social Work (or any other recognised equivalent qualification)
*HCPC registration
*Drivers Licence and use of your own vehicle.

Working with Service Care Solutions offers many benefits including:
*A specialist consultant within an experienced Social Work recruitment team
*Consistently excellent rates of pay
*An extensive range of Social Work vacancies across the UK
*Payroll service twice a week
*Personal on-going training budgets
*Registrations and DBS paid for by us.

Service Care Solutions also offers a £250 referral bonus! So if you know anyone who would be perfect for this role and they are placed into work you receive £250 once their probationary period has been completed.
