Welcome

The purpose of Social Work England is to regulate social workers so that people receive the best possible support, whenever they might need it in life. This is your unique opportunity to be part of a brand new organisation that’s taking a new approach to regulating social workers in their vital roles.

We are committed to redefining standards through collaboration with everyone involved in social work. To help us deliver on that ambition we’re recruiting to several varied, challenging and rewarding roles that play a critical part in making a lasting difference to people and communities in England. As these partner positions will play a key role in our quality assurance, registration and fitness to practise functions, we’re looking for people with a broad range of backgrounds that represent the communities that we support.

Ensuring quality social work

To make sure that social work education courses offer the highest quality training to students, we are looking for inspectors to assess the standard of courses being delivered nationwide by education providers. These specialist roles are suitable for people with and without social work experience, and people who have experience of working in quality assurance, education or healthcare regulation.

If you are someone who is able to analyse information and evidence to make informed decisions and make sound, impartial and reasoned decisions, we’d love to hear from you.

Offering the highest quality of training 

We are also looking for three registered social workers to assess the information provided by social workers who wish to practice professionally in England. They will make sure that people have the requirements necessary to practice safely and effectively before joining our register.

Delivering safe and effective practise 

We need partners to help make decisions at fitness to practise hearings should a concern raised about a social workers professional conduct, competence or health reach this stage. We will be looking for people with and without social work experience to chair hearing panels and be a panel member. We will also be looking for legal advisers to listen to individual cases and provide independent legal advice to panels of decision makers and hearing participants.

Even if you’ve never considered this type of work before, please don’t let that stop you from applying. If you want to help shape effective social work practice in England, this is your opportunity. Our training and support will help you along the way.
