Memorandum of Co-Operation

The East of England Regional Partnership for Managing the Demand and Supply of Children’s Social Workers

Nationally and regionally, each council is focused on attraction, recruitment and retention to fill social worker vacancies and leadership roles. Success is mixed and much depends on factors like pay and the employment package, as well as reputation, development opportunities, case loads, quality of support and supervision, together with leadership. A few LAs are experiencing severe service quality issues and their increased recruitment and agency supply activities are affecting the whole supply pipeline. The mis-match in requirements, i.e. over-demand and under-supply, is affecting all local authorities.
