The London Borough of Greenwich are currently looking for an experienced Locum Social Worker to join their Children's Front Line Teams.

With all "Good" in their last OFSTED Social Work inspection, they are a fantastic Local Authority to work for, who very rarely require Locum Social Workers as they have such a stable and supported working environment.

They offer full training and support for their Locum members of staff as well as competitive pay rates for the London area.

Located to the South East of London it has strong over ground and tube links meaning that you would not need to be a car driver for the role.
