“In an unprecedented era of high stress and high caseloads, what can we do to make the career attractive to new graduates?” 
Matthew, Birmingham

One of the biggest challenges we face in recruiting new graduates is overturning the many misconceptions they have about social work. We are working to change this by going out to university campuses to communicate the benefits of a career in social work, as well as running insight days to enable graduates and final year students to find out what the job is really like.

Today’s graduates are more socially engaged and keener to make a positive impact than ever before. Social work offers a huge variety of work with a number of organisations, high levels of personal responsibility, and of course the immense satisfaction of making a difference to some of the most vulnerable children and families across the country.  

Not all graduates are the same, and there are several routes into social work. At Frontline, our offer of 200 days of on-the-job training in your first year and the ability to earn as you learn help us attract top graduates who are eager to leave university and enter the world of work. 

We also recognise the importance of personal development to young people. Our unit model and offer of leadership coaching and seminars, provide high levels of personal support. Meanwhile the chance to complete a Master’s degree and join the Frontline Fellowship – our network for alumni – allow our participants to continue their development throughout the programme and beyond.
