Social workers work with people and families to support them through difficult times and ensure that vulnerable people, including children and adults, can live a happy independent life. Helping people who have mental health problems, learning difficulties, disabilities, recovering addicts, young offenders, those struggling with relationships... it could literally be anything.
The role of a Social worker is to maintain professional relationships with people, acting as guides and advocates. This job requires a passion for helping people and gives a good opportunity to progress, from moving up the career ladder to earning more qualifications. Being a graduate profession, social work requires either an honour or a postgraduate degree in social work.
Although a social care career can be extremely rewarding, each day is different and those choosing to be a social worker will need to be prepared to work within a multi-disciplinary setting alongside nurses, occupational therapists, consultants, psychologists, housing officers and the police.
