Candidates > WHY CHOOSE SANCTUARY
"I've got to say, the service provided by Sanctuary has been second to none.
It has been absolutely exceptional."
Sanctuary offers more than a job search service; we can support you through your social work career.
Long term relationships with both our clients and candidates
Our low staff turnover offers a consistent service that our candidates can rely on. The consultant you initially speak to when you register will be your contact at Sanctuary throughout your placement and, potentially, for many years as your career develops. Our candidates often feed back their appreciation of the knowledge and understanding their consultant has, not just of the social work profession, but of their individual career history and requirements. This makes it easier and quicker to match you to the right job each time.
Exclusive access to jobs
With nationwide coverage and as a preferred partner of more than 160 local authorities in the UK as well as Cafcass, SSAFA and many other organisations, we can offer you exclusive job opportunities across all fields of social work practice.
An expert understanding
Sanctuary directly employs senior social work practitioners throughout our business. As well as being part of our social work delivery arm, Skylakes, they are available to advise our consultants on important social work issues and keep them informed of any changes that may affect our candidates’ roles. This, along with the feedback we get from our candidates, equips our teams with a better understanding of the social work profession than other agencies.
Getting you the job you want, quicker
Our dedicated compliance team will organise registration certificates, references and immunisations (where necessary) and provide appropriate training to ensure you are prepared ahead of your start date. Sanctuary is a DBS umbrella body, enabling online DBS applications to be carried out in-house, often resulting in a faster turnaround.
Supporting best practice
As sponsors of the Social Work Awards and producers of Sanctuary Social Work News, we have a commitment to celebrating the best in the profession, sharing good practice and promoting excellence in social work.
Sanctuary offers a varied programme of social work training courses
to help you progress your career and meet the continuing professional development (CPD) requirements of your registration body.
