The applicant will have the support of an experienced manager and advanced practitioner and will be very much part of the Wigan Council family, able to undertake training and developmental opportunities.

Wigan is an amazingly friendly and welcoming local authority. Our agency social workers are an integral part of our team and have the same benefits as permanent staff members. This includes supported and managed caseloads, regular reflective supervision and support from an experienced manager; access to training; opportunity for diverse base home/office working; access to regular exercise, and departmental briefings. There is also free parking available

Wigan's motto is 'Be Kind' and is truly a kind place to work. With great teams and a great work-life balance with a low caseload and flexibility in work arrangements. 

Other benefits of working at Wigan are that it is 2 days a week in the office and 3 days from home.

Caseload – around 20 (18-22 generally ).
