Qualified Social Workers

We're currently recruiting for Qualified Social Workers, Social Work Assistants, Senior Practitioners and Team Managers to join a variety of frontline teams in Dudley, including children’s safeguarding, mental health, learning/physical disabilities and older persons.

If you'd like to know more, then check out the Children's Services page on Dudley's website.

Our professional services go beyond finding you your next locum contract within the council and are designed with Social Workers in mind. It’s clear that talented workers are constantly refreshing and improving their skills, remaining competitive by acquiring new knowledge, and always striving to keep learning. This is why we provide our workers with free continuous development.

We partner with Elevate Training and Development offering a flexible and specialist online training/continuous professional development (CPD) portal. A team of expert social workers and academies with experience with children's and adults' services created the portal 'Social Work Processes’. Access would normally cost up to £500 per year for individuals but is funded by Connect2Dudley free of charge for you.

If you’re looking for Non-Qualified Care roles, have a look at our page HERE.

Users can log in at any time to use a range of resources:

  • Reports and case studies
  • Presentations
  • Audio files and Podcasts
  • Example cases
  • Live presentations and webinars
  • Recorded videos
  • Telephone and online discussions
  • Guest speakers
  • New legislation updates
  • Reflective logs for HCPC re-registration
  • Professional development portfolio tools

Our lovely QSW Talent Partner, Kirsty Wood, has been catching up with our amazing social workers, and they've got some invaluable insights to share! We talked all about working in Dudley and with Dudley MBC and they had some incredible things to say.
