Job description

No child’s life chances should be limited by their social or family circumstances.

Our mission is to create positive social change for children who do not have a safe or stable home. We do this by developing excellent social work practice and leadership. Our Frontline programme supports outstanding candidates to become incredible social workers and join a movement for change in social work and broader society.

From the very first day of your two-year placement, you will have a measurable impact in your local community, making a real, positive difference to society through your work.

You will gain skills in leadership, conflict resolution, creative problem solving and resilience that will help you thrive in this dynamic, challenging and rewarding role. The abilities you develop will open doors to a wide range of social impact careers inside social work and beyond.

Ready to develop your leadership potential, in a career where you can have an instant and real impact? Apply Now for the Frontline Programme.

The Frontline programme offers

  • The chance to earn as you learn with a bursary of up to £20,000 in year one and a salary of up to £34,000 in year two.
  • An intensive five-week summer institute to kick start your journey.
  • Professional qualification as a social worker after year one.
  • Dynamic teamwork on real cases supported and led by an experienced social worker.
  • An opportunity to work in partnership with organisations and professionals in health, education, the criminal justice system and beyond to bring about positive change.
  • Entrance to the Frontline Fellowship after the programme: a movement of outstanding leaders working to create social change for disadvantaged children and families.
