SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

A desperate need for social workers in Newtown and throughout the area has led to Powys County Council holding a recruitment event - in Shropshire.


The council, criticised in a scathing report last year about its children’s services, has been employing agency staff in recent months to address the issue.


It is understood it has numerous vacancies for social workers due to staff leaving the service and says it is offering “relocation packages.”


An open evening is taking place for those interested in a career in social work on 25 April between 4pm and 8pm at the Wynnstay Hotel in Oswestry.


“For those who are already a social worker, senior practitioner, newly qualified or even those thinking of a career in social work then come along to chat about opportunities to develop your career at Powys County Council,” said a council statement about the event.


“There are great employee benefits including relocation package, excellent rates of pay, and flexible working patterns. Staff receive on-going training and support to progress in their social work career.”
