Lay and Registrant Adjudicators

Proposed fee: £310 per day; A minimum commitment of 20 days per year

Every day, social workers support millions of people to improve their chances in life. Social Work England is a specialist body taking a new approach to regulating social workers in their vital roles. We believe in the power of collaboration and share a common goal with those we regulate – to protect the public, enable positive change and ultimately improve people’s lives. 

Can you lend us your expertise and help make a difference? 

We’re looking for partners who can offer their skills and knowledge for several days throughout the year to support our fitness to practise function. 

Whether as a Lay Adjudicator or as a Registrant Adjudicator, you will assist in the decision-making process of a hearing in order to determine whether a social worker’s fitness to practise is, or continues to be, impaired. No two days will be the same as you’ll strive to ensure that that cases are dealt with efficiently, objectively and fairly.

You will be confident in making independent decisions that stand up to scrutiny and be able to articulate these clearly and carefully in written judgements.

We’re looking for candidates from diverse backgrounds who are representative of the UK population and our registrants. Our offices are based in Sheffield, but we are keen to receive applications from candidates throughout the UK. 

If you are ready to join our journey to re-shape social work standards so that people receive the best possible support whenever they might need it in life take a look at our recruitment campaign site partnersrecruitment.socialworkengland.org.uk

Please note that if you have ever been on a social work register, you are not eligible to undertake a Lay Adjudicator role. To be a Registrant Adjudicator, you need to be a registered social worker.

Closing Date 12pm on Tuesday 28 May 2019.
