Adult social workers

Passionate about making a difference to people's lives

If you are passionate about delivering high quality social work, then by working for us, you can play a part in delivering the essential public services that improve lives and protect the most vulnerable in our community.

Whether you are newly qualified, more experienced or are returning to work after a career break, there will be opportunities for you to join our teams serving the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole area.

In addition to living in an area with outstanding beaches and stunning countryside, we also offer excellent training, a competitive salary and other great benefits.

How we work

We support a culture that fosters excellence and collaboration – a place where social workers are empowered to be creative and share ideas and advice. The teams are structured to encourage and develop multi-disciplinary working, particularly with NHS partners.

We support our social workers to ensure they have the resources they need to make a difference where it counts.
