Social Worker in Essex
on 5 March 2022
Talk the talk & you will go far!
Far too many people who can talk the talk but no action! If you work hard, are conscientious & do as you are asked you won’t go far! Too many service managers that seem to have forgotten the pressures of frontline social work & completely unrealistic whilst having no clue as to the basics such as Mosaic & law/legislation. Pros are flexible/remote working & most team managers try their best with supervision, training is also good. Pay & grading is a complete joke even if you have worked hard to evidence your grade & stage.

Stressful work enviroment with limited support
I would not reccomend working for ECC unless you like tick box exercises with no positive outcome.Senior management could benefit by involving employees in decesion making.

Stressful but worth it
Stressful fast paced job with big responsibilities and targets to meet.I would say you get out what you put in.High levels of computer/paperwork.Joint working with health colleagues can be discombobulated.
