Job description

Our two-year leadership development programme offers outstanding individuals a dynamic route into one of Britain’s most rewarding and toughest professions. In the UK alone, half a million children don’t have a safe or stable home. Great social workers can change this. That’s why Frontline recruits and develops people like you to be the difference in the lives of vulnerable children and families. 

You’ll use your skills in relationship building, conflict resolution and leadership to ensure you thrive in the dynamic and challenging world of social work.  Following a five-week training programme you will spend two years working directly with children and families, based in a local authority.   

You will: 

  • Work locally – roles available in your local community in the North East - Middlesbrough, Hartlepool, County Durham and North Yorkshire (Scarborough and Richmond).

  • Be paid a tax free £18k bursary in year one and up to £30k in year two.

  • Qualify as a social work professional through a fully funded Masters degree.

  • Receive high quality supervision and training from experienced social workers, academics and professional coaches. 

  • Make a real difference in your local community. For the most vulnerable, receiving support from a social worker can make a significant difference to the direction their lives take. As a social worker on the Frontline programme, that difference could be you.  

Once you have completed the programme, you will join a community of outstanding leaders sharing your passion for leading social change. The skills you will learn will open doors to a wide range of social impact careers inside social work and beyond. 

Read stories from our participants who have completed the programme on our website. 

Be the difference – Apply now! Applications may close before 30th March in some areas so early applications are encouraged.
