Senior Social Worker (Current Employee) – Esher, Surrey – 30 June 2018
I have always enjoyed working as a social worker, especially senior social worker in Adult Care. After many years of searching I finaly found something I liked doing! I value the fact that I was given plenty of independence to complete my tasks, that I work with changing group of people on my caseload and that I work with a good team of people. I like less the bureacracy which is frankly stifling. There are so many forms to coplete that it all begins to look like a ritual preventing us from working with people and absorbing all our time. However, I do appreciate that recording has to be completed, but if it was up to me I would suggest some changes.
Productive, Work life balance, friendly people to work with

Social Care Worker (Current Employee) – Surrey – 31 January 2018
The management are honest enough to tell you to move on to other careers if you are not going to progress. Pay does not match the cost of living in the area. If your an unqualified worker then you get little recognition for your hard work and your skills often overlooked. Training is normally good and the teams are generally supportive.
