Calling all newly qualified social workers and those that will be qualifying in the next few months……Do you want to have the best start to your career? Join us to be part of something different?  Why wouldn't you!

In the spring of 2022, Birmingham Children’s Trust received over 150 applications from student social workers who wanted to join our ASYE (Assessed and Supported Year in Employment) in October 2022. The Trust has recognised this demand and we have been able to secure some more spaces on the October cohort. This is a rare and exciting opportunity; if you are interested please apply and tell us a bit more about yourself. You will be joining a group of newly qualified social workers all going on the same journey as you.

We are looking to interview for positions during the week beginning 3rd October.

We have an excellent varied ASYE programme run by our highly recognised Trust Academy. Here at the Trust we have the exciting unique option to continue your learning journey post your first year ASYE to become a Year 2 Accredited Child and Family Practitioner and support your career progression in the second year.

We will offer you a mapped out clear career progression pathway supporting your development into a senior social worker role.

We truly understand that your first year as a social worker is so important for your career and the transition of moving from student to social worker can be challenging, particularly in these recent changeable times. 

You will be supported every step of the way through your ASYE journey.  You will be a fully integrated team member from the outset and work alongside and learn from very experienced and knowledgeable managers and our exceptionally dedicated workforce, as well as have wrap around support from a dedicated Senior Practitioner from our Academy to work with you on your own individual development journey.

If you are successful and offered a role (subject to passing your social work degree and obtaining SWE registration), you will join our next ASYE programme that commences mid to late October. There may also be some opportunities available for you to start earlier whilst awaiting your registration in a unqualified role. 

Interviews to be held virtually week commencing 3rd October 2022

A requirement of this role is for you to have an enhanced DBS check, therefore if you have signed up to the DBS update service or are thinking about joining this service then please let us know on your application.
