Social Care provides help and support to people allowing them to live an independent lives or improve their quality of lives. The social care sector covers all occupations that aim to help people overcome difficulties related to physical, mental, environmental or lifestyle problems at any stage during their lives. It includes staff in both professional and non-professional roles that support vulnerable people living in the community and/or residential care. Logiga supplies social care professionals for temporary assignments, permanent jobs and fixed-term contracts at over 20 local authorities, as well as NHS trusts, charities, private and voluntary organisations. As you would expect, safeguarding is a top priority for our clients, as it also is for our management and consulting teams at Logiga. Our commitment to clients means we only work with candidates who can demonstrate professional qualifications appropriate for the care sector, and eligibility to work in the UK. Social care is separated into children’s social care and adult social care services
Qualified Social Workers Children
Logiga offer an abundance of opportunities for Qualified Social Workers wishing to work within Children’s Services. Teams under this banner include; Children and Families, Adoption and Fostering, and Youth Offending. Children and Families teams are usually the largest and offer more job opportunities. A social worker might work in: – Referral and Assessment – Family Support – Children in Need – Child Protection, Looked After Children, Care Planning or Children with Disabilities teams, in either a statutory social services department or a private organisation. The work involved can be complex but vitally important in keeping children and young people safe from harm. Due to the vulnerable clients that you will be working with on a daily basis, all qualified social workers are required to hold a current CRB and be registered with the Health Care Professionals Council (HCPC).
If you are HCPC-registered and have experience of working with children and families or young people, you can search for current opportunities on our jobs database, or call us today to discuss your needs. We’ll advise you on how we can best work together to take things forward from there.
Social Care Adults
Adult social care is about providing personal and practical support to help people in their daily lives. It’s about supporting individuals to maintain their independence and dignity, and to make sure they have choice and control. This could involve assisting individuals to continue living at home; supporting vulnerable people to integrate into society or helping individuals to access services to assist them with independent living. Social care has increased the standard of living for those vulnerable to society by offering support to: the elderly; people with mental health needs; those with learning and physical disabilities, individuals suffering from alcohol and substance abuse problems; the homeless and victims of domestic abuse.
Every year, Logiga places hundreds of social care workers in roles working with vulnerable adults. We are regularly asked by employers to put forward talented people for challenging roles in:
Nursing and residential homes
Some of the examples of roles Logiga resource for includes; Home managers, assistant social workers, supported housing officers, substance misuse workers, day centre officers, support workers, refuge workers and nurses.
It’s not essential to hold formal qualifications. If you have experience of working in social care with vulnerable adults, search our online jobs database or call to speak to one of our specialist consultants today.
Social Workers is protected profession which means that only people registered as social workers with a UK regulatory body can practise the profession in the UK.
There are four regulators in the UK and you must be registered with the correct one for the region you wish to work in. Your registration does not automatically transfer between the regulators so if you move to a new region, you will have to complete a new registration process. The four UK regulators are:
England Health and Care Professions Council
Northern Ireland Northern Ireland Social Service Council
Scotland Scottish Social Service Council
Wales Care Council of Wales
In order to be added to any of these social work registers, you must have an approved qualification which is the UK Social Work Degree (undergraduate or postgraduate) or equivalent. You must also meet the requirements of the regulators code of conduct and undergo background checks to ensure you have no criminal convictions that would make you unsuitable to work with vulnerable adults or children. You can find out more about these checks from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
Once registered, you should meet all requirements for continued professional development(CPD) and the code of conduct to ensure that you remain on the register.
The regulatory bodies also investigate complaints of professional misconduct against social workers and can remove or suspend them from the register and preventing them from practising if professional misconduct is proved.
