Social Care Support.


Supporting social workers through every step

Sanctuary offers more than a social work recruitment service. We support our candidates throughout their social work careers.

An expert understanding

Our highly experienced social work consultants are sympathetic to the complex, challenging and sensitive work you do. This is why we make it our business to get to know you and your future employer, so that we can be confident in introducing you to the right job, at the right time.

By taking a highly personalised approach, we like to think we are helping look after your professional wellbeing.

Long-term relationships

You’ll be allocated an experienced social work consultant, who will be your primary point of contact throughout your placement and, potentially, for many years as your career evolves.

Our candidates often share their appreciation of the knowledge and understanding their consultant has. Not just of the social work profession, but of their individual career history and requirements. This makes it easier and quicker to match you to the right job each time.

Exclusive access to jobs

With nationwide coverage and as a preferred partner of more than 160 local authorities in the UK as well as a number of charities and many other organisations, we can offer you exclusive job opportunities across all fields of social work practice.

Safe recruitment

Our dedicated compliance team will organise registration certificates, references and immunisations (where necessary) and provide appropriate training to ensure you are prepared ahead of your start date. Sanctuary Personnel is a DBS umbrella body, enabling online DBS applications to be carried out in-house, often resulting in a faster turnaround.

Supporting best practice

As producers of Sanctuary Social Work News and sponsors of the Social Work Awards, we are committed to celebrating the best in the profession, sharing good practice and promoting excellence in social work.

There are hundreds of different social work jobs. If you let us know what work you like and the type of team you want to work in, we’ll only ever present you with suitable placement opportunities.
