Working with specific groups of clients, including children, the elderly and families in crisis, and help them to solve the problems they’re facing. Generally, social workers specialise in either adult or child social care. Clients may be vulnerable or in difficult situations, so social workers need to be able to work under pressure and understand other people’s viewpoints.
Typical duties include:
Visiting clients and assessing their needs
Arranging appropriate care, resources or benefits
Liaising with relatives, colleagues and other professionals
Attending or contributing towards court cases.
Unsociable hours are common, and in certain settings this may include shift work. Promotion is possible through specialisation, research positions or managerial roles. Ongoing professional development is an important feature of the work.
