Experienced Social Workers
If you’re an experienced Social Worker looking to advance your career, we want to hear from you. We’d expect you to bring your passion and commitment, and we’d provide you with a comprehensive programme of learning and development as you expand your experience, specialise as appropriate to yourself and your ambitions, and support you throughout your career. As you can see from the overview of social care in Camden, we can provide you with a range of challenging roles as you engage in services throughout your career growth. And we don’t “sit on your shoulder”, we’re not into micro-management, and fully expect experienced Social Workers to develop their own areas of interest; we’re open to new ideas and continue to encourage innovation:
“……Camden is the best at Family Group Conferencing (FGC) in London….that attracted me to come here in the first place….seeing as FGC is about listening to families and doing social work well, it has been very rewarding to work here. There’s a lot of smart cookies and interesting characters to work with, and you can get a good lunch! The management is open to new ideas….I have valued feeling trusted to develop my area of work. For example, we have set a user group of Families members that input to the service and have even signed up as volunteers. The ethos of my work is believing in people’s strengths – I think it’s no coincidence that Camden excels at FGC.”
(Service Manager, FGC)
