SWP Consulting, the specialist social work recruitment company which secures tailored opportunities for social care’s most experienced professionals, said today that a renewed focus on providing a clear path for career progression and continuing opportunities for development is vital for giving the profession the high status it deserves.

SWP, which is a part of HCL plc, one of the UK’s leading health and social care staffing companies, was commenting as it prepared to exhibit at Community Care Live 2010, the highlight of the social care industry’s calendar. At its stand at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London, 18 – 19 May 2010, SWP will offer the most sought after specialist social work positions in the UK to candidates with three or more years’ experience in the field.

As part of its commitment to nurturing the industry’s elite professionals, SWP guarantees a pay rise for all new candidates who register with them, as well as carefully tailored roles with highly competitive rates of pay. SWP candidates become part of a magic circle of social workers, with access to exclusive social and networking events, awards schemes and professional development opportunities.

Gareth Welch, Managing Director of SWP, explains: “We fully support the recommendations of the Social Work Task Force which called for a reliable supply of confident, high quality, adaptable professionals into the workforce who are better trained, command higher salaries and have a more structured, nationally recognised career progression.

“We believe the best way to achieve this is to support and reward experienced social workers with roles that precisely suit their qualifications and preferences, along with the best rates of pay available in the industry. The benefits of this are more motivated and supported professionals who can provide an even better service for their employers and the service users.”

Welch concluded: “Social workers perform minor miracles every day, helping vulnerable people to improve their life choices. It’s time their vital contribution was more widely recognised, and the way to achieve this is to raise the status of the profession through providing greater rewards. That is SWP’s commitment – we owe it to social workers and to the communities they serve.”
