Event description

Description

Your work makes a real difference to the lives of other people, we think it should be celebrated.

Barking and Dagenham Council is hosting a free event that recognises the importance of children and family social workers featuring Lemn Sissay MBE.

You will hear about Lemn’s personal experience of the care system – the good and bad – and the importance of good social workers.

The council’s director of operations for children’s care and support, Ann Graham, will speak about how the borough has changed and how it is a challenging but rewarding place to work, and the many local initiatives put in place that are having a positive impact.

There will then be an opportunity for you to take part in a question and answer session with Lemn and Ann.

At the end of the session, you can enjoy free refreshments, get the first look at a photography exhibition documenting the work of social workers, and browse the career fair to find out more about how the borough’s social care services are undergoing a significant overhaul – you can even have an initial discussion with our recruitment team about starting your future with Barking and Dagenham Council, including finding out about our benefits package, which includes a £5,000 welcome payment, £15,000 retentation bonus, a two-month paid sabbatical, and subsidised housing so don't forget your CV!

Who should attend?

This free event is hosted by Barking and Dagenham Council and is ideal for experienced social workers, newly qualified social workers, agency social workers thinking about full-time opportunities or students about to complete their social worker studies.
