We're going to take a look at the entry requirements, day to day responsibilities, salary expectations and job opportunities available within the field, so you'll be able to find everything you need right here.

In order to get your foot in the door of a social work position, it is essential that you have an honours or postgraduate degree qualification from a course that is approved by the General Social Care Council.

Due to the fact that you're going to be working with some of the most vulnerable and at risk members of society, this is something that is not negotiable, so you're going to need to ensure you've got the relevant qualification in a subject such as politics, social care, legal studies or social sciences before proceeding with your job search.

If you meet those requirements, then you'll be able to look forward to a challenging and rewarding position in the industry. Dealing with people such as young offenders, the elderly, mentally and physically disabled people, drug abusers and alcoholics, you're going to be tasked with helping these people get their lives back on track by assessing their situation, conducting ongoing analyses of living environments, liaising with government bodies and helping them to find training and treatment.

You can expect to start off on around £23,000 per year, with potential wages of around £57,000 on offer to senior workers with around fifteen years worth of experience.
