Interested in a Career in Social Services?

“A career in social services is a job like no other, in fact it’s much more than just a job. It’s a career that can give you an important role in another person’s life. Social service workers provide practical help and support to individuals and families in times of crisis. They empower people who use services, assisting them to make informed choices which will improve their lives. They make difficult decisions and at times enforce the law.”

The Scottish Social Services Council have produced a useful guide which is available as a free download on their website:
