How to prepare for a social work interview

So, you’ve survived the rigours of the training and you are now eager to secure your dream job as a fully-qualified social worker, with only the interview standing in the way. But the competition is fierce, so setting yourself head and shoulders above your fellow applicants is essential if you’re to succeed – and it’s not simply a case of memorising a set of social work interview questions and answers.

Do your homework 

Social work interviews are a chance for your prospective employer to find out about you, and an unmissable opportunity to demonstrate how you will be an essential addition to their team. The job description will help you to understand how you can add value in your role as a social worker, but it may not be detailed. So, in addition, you should research the organisation in detail so that you can better understand how you can contribute to its development. Read the organisation’s website carefully, noting any identified strengths and weaknesses, and brush up on changes to legislation which might pose challenges for the future. 

The CommunityCare website is an invaluable resource for professionals to discuss issues related to social work and to find out about the latest changes in legislation.

Meet Piper the Puppy!

Yesterday was a very exciting day as we added another addition to our family.. a puppy! We got her from the blue cross in Oxford and I think we made the right choice, she seems to be perfect for our family not to mention she is the cutest! She is very similar to Sienna in a weird way, haha! She is crazy and constantly on the go playing and running round for a few hours and then just zonks out asleep for a few hours! Remind you of anyone?! Lol! She is only about 10 weeks old so is uber tiny, I'm worried we will lose her in the house!

Notes on nutrition - New-to-me products

Two chicks products - I was recently sent some of the Two Chicks egg products; the free range egg whites, free range whole eggs and the egg white omelette mix (cheese flavour). I have thoroughly enjoyed using all of the products.. I am a big fan of eggs in general, when I make scrambled eggs or omelettes I use mainly egg whites and constantly chuck egg yolks away which is a waste of money. These work out more affordable in the long run and are so much easier to use. They all taste delicious and give a perfect texture. I'm a big big fan of these now and will continue to use and buy them!

Incorporating neons

Cardigan*; Fat Face, Blouse; Primark, Cropped chinos*; Fat Face, Sandals; Accessorize,

Neon is all the rage at the moment, but if you're not that into it, I thought I'd show you how to subtly incorporate them into your everyday fashion. My typical outfit most days in jeans and a t-shirt or blouse but this Summer I wanted to switch up the jeans as they can be a bit hot!
