What are the average rates of pay for a newly qualified social worker?

Rates of pay vary across the employers within the Partnership, and each employer will have their own employment package to offer to new recruits. Most newly qualified staff can expect to be earning between £25,000 - £30,000 p.a. when they start their ASYE year.

Whilst we would hope that money is not the primary motivation for taking a job – we do recognise that pay is still an important factor to be weighed up, alongside other things such as career opportunities, CPD, location, and the support infrastructure that is offered. So it’s well worth doing a bit of research to find out more about each employer before you make any firm decisions.
