Secure . Flexible and interesting.
Senior Social Work Practitioner (Current Employee) –  Dublin West, County Dublin22 October 2017
Long career with this company. Interesting work, meet new people every day. Flexibility and variety to work. Travel is interesting.
The hardest part of the job is the endless paperwork and lack of admin support. Caseloads are too large and the expectation to see families every few weeks in unrealistic.
Commitment to training and personal development is difficult to attain given challenges of workload.
Pros
Travel
Cons
Endless paperwork

I loved Working there
Social Worker (Former Employee) –  Dublin, Ireland22 December 2016
I loved working as a child in care Social worker. It was one of the most life changing and personality building, experience of my life. The people I worked wish were soo welcoming and made me feel strong and confident even when I needed help and advice. I felt very comfortable working there and looked forward to going into work each day. This was by far the best working experience I have had and I was very sad to leave.
Pros

Challenging but very rewarding and enjoyable workplace
Social Worker - Long-Term Children in Care Team (Former Employee) –  Dublin18 August 2016
Start at or before 9am. Either have meetings, emails/phone calls/letters/etc. to attend to or be visiting children/families/residential units.

I learned how to work in a fast pace and challenging work environment and learned how to enjoy this by being positive and optimistic as well as appreciating the importance of having a good team of colleagues.

My co workers were extremely nice and helpful which created a more positive and productive work environment.

The hardest part of the job was the struggle to make noticeable change and the burden of bureaucracy. I rarely felt 'on top' of my workload.

The most enjoyable part of the job was spending positive moments with the children.
Pros
I enjoyed it
Cons
Stressful at times
