  • Liaising with other agencies and following up enquiries

  • Keeping up with the relevant legislation

What are the Entry Requirements?

There are no formal entry requirements for social work assistant jobs, although you will increase your chances of finding a job if you have some relevant voluntary or paid experience in a caring role.

Along with experience, there are a number of vocational qualifications that will help you find work in this sector, such as a Level 2 Diploma in Health and Social Care, or a Level 2 Certificate in Preparing to Work in Adult Social Care. For any job working with children or vulnerable adults, you will also need to pass the relevant Disclosure and Barring Service background checks.
