What makes a good CV?
Your CV is the first way you introduce yourself to an employer so it is important to use it to make a great impression. It needs to be clear, easy to read and relevant to the job you are applying for. We can always help you in the right direction if you’re struggling with your CV with tailored help in getting it looking the best it can be.
What documents do I need to be considered for jobs?
When you become a candidate with Prospero, we will ask you to complete a full compliance check list and ask for a series of documents including:
- Your original qualifications
- Your original social work registration certificate
- Scanned copies of your passport and any relevant visa documents
- Professional and personal references are obtained at the time of appointment
- These documents will be scanned and attached to your file for future reference.
We will also make Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks.
Do you take on newly qualified workers?
It is difficult for newly qualified social workers to become locums straight away due to the extra support that they require. This is not something that would normally be provided to temporary or contract staff.
Generally, you need at least 12-18 months’ local authority experience as a social worker after completing any period of protected workload and support, such as the ASYE.
How much experience do I need in order to become a locum?
Generally, you would need 12-18 months’ local authority experience as a social worker after completing any period of protected workload and support as a newly qualified social worker. Every manager is different, but very few will consider newly qualified social workers for locum.
