Key Skills Benefits
We have introduced a number of additional Key Skills Schemes to ensure that you are supported from the moment you decide to join us.
Moving to a new area is a really important decision, and we want to make sure that you have all the information you need to help you decide Torbay is the place for you.
Whether you have already been offered a position with us, or are even simply considering a position with us, we can help you and your family get to know the area. Our hosting team will show you round the area and give you information about nurseries, schools and colleges. We can also help you to find a rental property as well as provide other working members of your family with an indication of places to look for employment.
Once you have accepted a position with us, you may be eligible for a key skills relocation package*. We understand that everyone has different circumstances and our aim is to be as flexible as we can to support your move to Torbay. If you are eligible, we will offer you a personal relocation package that should ensure you don’t need to worry about being able to afford to move to Torbay.
*based on you relocating within a certain radius of Torbay
For certain posts meeting the criteria, we have recently introduced a key skills retention scheme. If you join us and are appointed to one of these eligible posts, you’ll get £2000 for every 12 months completed service**. Just another great reason why you should join us.
**subject to the rules of the scheme
Once you are working for Torbay, you’ll want to tell all your friends what a great place it is to work. We know that the power of your recommendation is far better than any advert, and so why not refer them to us? If you do and they get a Social Work job with us, we’ll give you £1000 to say thank you.***
***subject to the terms of the scheme
As if that isn’t enough, we are working on a whole career path approach to Social Work, so that once you start working for us, you can really make an impression. So apply today and don’t look back.
