It enables staff to build on existing skills and develop new knowledge and it provides clarity around the requirements for pay and progression, social work registration and further accreditation
In addition to a competitive salary, we offer a wide range of benefits including:
- relocation costs up to £8k, if you are making a move of more than 20 miles
