Benefits and development

We want to work with you to develop your career as a social worker in Hackney wherever you are in your career and wherever you want to get to.

To help do this in Hackney we have developed a new and innovative Adult services Practice Academy, where each faculty is set up to support and guide you through your career journey in adult services.

In addition we have also created new consultant social worker roles, who will be advanced practitioners based in your teams, offering support and co-working on complex cases with you, so that caseloads are shared in a unit-type approach.

We take support and supervision very seriously, offering one to one and group reflective supervision, complex case clinics and a high risk panel to ensure that we all support each other and that no one feels that isolated with their casework.

At Hackney we champion diversity and equality and we go that extra mile, offering a wide selection of work-life benefits, financial benefits and wider development and learning programmes in addition to the Adult Services Practice Academy.
