Want to find out what life could be like in a council where caseloads are shrinking, morale is increasing and outcomes are improving?

Then come to Somerset and join us for our ‘Try Before You Apply’ day on 19 April.

The day will give qualified social workers the chance to meet our social workers, learn about the improvements we are making and get a first-hand taste of what it would be like to live and work in Somerset.

A motivated workforce

You will find out how our structured support offer for qualified social workers and our commitment to reducing caseloads means staff are staying and continuing their career at Somerset County Council.

You will learn how we support social workers with our strong emphasis on reflective supervision both for individuals and for groups.

And you will discover how we foster a professional and motivated workforce, who deliver good quality social work and leadership at all levels.

Meet our social workers

In the morning you will get to see part of our beautiful county and in the afternoon you will spend time with our social workers and operational staff, who can tell you all about our working environment and cases.
