Social Work England is a specialist body taking a new approach to regulating social workers in their vital roles. We believe in the power of collaboration and share a common goal with those we regulate – to protect the public, enable positive change and ultimately improve people’s lives.

Can you lend us your expertise and help make a difference?

We’re looking for partners who can offer their skills and knowledge for several days throughout the year to support our fitness to practise function.

As Legal Adviser, you will be a practising solicitor or barrister with 10 years’ post qualification experience. You will provide timely and appropriate legal advice to ensure a transparent and lawful fitness to practise hearing. You will also be responsible for drafting the adjudicators written decision with reasons, ensuring it is comprehensive and robust.

No two days will be the same as you’ll strive to ensure that that cases are dealt with efficiently, objectively and fairly.

We’re looking for candidates from diverse backgrounds who are representative of the UK population and our registrants. Our offices are based in Sheffield, but we are keen to receive applications from candidates throughout the UK.

If you are ready to join our journey to re-shape social work standards so that people receive the best possible support whenever they might need it in life take a look at our recruitment campaign site

Closing Date: 12 midday 28 January 2022

We are committed to embracing equality, diversity and inclusion by promoting and sustaining an open and supportive environment.  We want everyone to feel they are able to bring their whole selves to work.   We expect everyone to have commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion, both in their role and in how we regulate.
