Social Worker - Falkland Islands

I have been approached to find an experienced social worker for a three-month assignment in the Falkland Islands. This is an outstanding opportunity for a social worker to experience working in a British Overseas Territory. It will be a talking point for the rest of your career. 

Key Responsibilities:

  • Work with children and families to provide support and assistance.
  • Assess individuals and families to determine their needs and develop plans for services.
  • Collaborate with other professionals and agencies to ensure comprehensive support.
  • Maintain accurate and up-to-date case records.


  • Qualified Social Worker with a minimum of three years post-qualification experience. 
  • Driving licence for a manual car. 
  • Demonstrated background in working with children and families.
  • Knowledge of child protection and court proceedings.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team.
  • Flexibility to adapt to the needs of the role and the community.


  • Travel and accommodation provided as part of the assignment. The journey over is an adventure in itself, from RAF Brize Norton via Ascension Island. 
  • A three month block booking in a unique location. 

 If you are a dedicated and compassionate Social Worker seeking a unique opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children and families in the Falkland Islands, then I would like to hear from you. If you know anyone in your contacts who has suitable experience, please share my details.
