Social Work England

Every day, social workers support millions of people to improve their chances in life. Social Work England is a specialist body taking a new approach to regulating social workers in their vital roles. We believe in the power of collaboration and share a common goal with those we regulate – to protect the public, enable positive change and ultimately improve people’s lives. 

Can you lend us your expertise and help make a difference? 

We’re looking for partners who can offer their skills and knowledge for several days throughout the year to support our fitness to practise function. 

As Lay Panel Chair, you will not have a background in social work but be able to apply your professional expertise and knowledge to make sound, impartial and independent decisions. As part of the role you will be expected to read papers in advance of hearings, chair proceedings and write full reports on the decisions reached.

We’re looking for candidates from diverse backgrounds who are representative of the UK population and our registrants. Our offices are based in Sheffield, but we are keen to receive applications from candidates throughout the UK.

If you are ready to join our journey to re-shape social work standards so that people receive the best possible support whenever they might need it in life take a look at our recruitment campaign site partnersrecruitment.socialworkengland.org.uk

Please note that if you have ever been on a social work register, you are not eligible to undertake a lay role.

Closing Date 12pm on Tuesday 28 May 2019.
