Here’s what our social workers say about working for us

Adults’ Social Care 

'I successfully completed my placement [with SCC] in July 2017. My learning journey was focussed, organised, supported, enriching and on reflection, it was a whole lot of fun! Sadly, when I qualified there were no positions with SCC, so I ventured to a different local authority. I learnt a lot with my first employer, however, I felt limited. The scope for creativity was clearly part of SCCs culture, which I couldn’t help but crave. I returned to SCC as soon as a post became available and I can truly say that I have never looked forward to going to work before like I do now. Not just the team I work within, but the entire directorate are some of the most amazing, caring individuals I have ever had the pleasure of working with. SCC are so focussed on learning and development; the opportunities are endless! As well as the scope for creativity, I can confidently say that they are the best local authority I have had the privilege to represent.'

Children’s Social Care

'Somerset are a responsible and supportive as an employer, I have found that they are willing to invest time in growing their own social workers which is really encouraging.

I did have an interview at a neighbouring authority and found the whole atmosphere at the interview with Somerset to be far more welcoming and friendly as well as being more professional.'

George, Social Worker, Children Looked After, South Somerset


'I have been offered lots of support and the relocation allowance made the move easy. I feel like Somerset is the perfect environment to develop as a professional with access to a variety of learning opportunities, the training schedule is second to none.'

Andy, Social Worker, Assessment, Bridgwater

'In Somerset we are an inclusive authority, always striving to Improve Lives in our County. We are looking to recruit committed staff who want to help us provide a gold star service for the most vulnerable of our residents in both Adults’ and Children’s Services.

We are working with Visit Somerset on some fun ways to engage and retain our current staff, as retention of our current staff is as important as recruiting new team members. We want our staff to feel valued by the organisation and the wider community and also relish all that Somerset has to offer.'

Claire, Recruitment & Engagement Officer, HR and Social Care
