We work with our Social Workers to fully understand their long-term career goals and make sure we’re providing the support they need to achieve them. In a nutshell, our philosophy is that everyone, at every stage of their career, should have the opportunity to grow, develop and progress. So, as well as access to a tailored programme of courses to help you improve on your skills and further your career, our approach gives you the opportunity to try out new ideas for yourself, to grow your role alongside your career and to learn from great coaches and mentors.

You can find more information here: Learning and Development and Continuing Professional Learning within Adult Social Care, including details of our ASYE.

In Adult Social Care we expect to support all staff to understand what is required of them and we provide a framework and resource to facilitate this. In turn we expect all staff to make full use of the learning and development opportunities on offer and to invest in personal and professional development to help us meet our commitments to the residents within Bexley. Our framework identifies what we offer and expect of staff when you begin with us, it outlines the core and developmental opportunities on offer to help you flourish  and develop your career pathway supporting our priorities in ASC and suggests options to help you excel within a range of specialisms.

At Bexley we recognise that the provision of high-quality social work services relies upon a well-trained, supported and motivated workforce. We are passionate about outstanding social work practice and are committed to investing in the development of all our staff to achieve this. We have ambitious plans for developing a learning culture in Bexley that continually drives up improvements and standards to deliver outstanding social work to our community.  We have worked hard to ensure our learning and development offer is clearly mapped against other continuing professional development activities and have linked all our courses to the Professional Capabilities Framework and the Knowledge and Skills statements and aligned them to our workforce development strategy.

Bexley’s Adult Social Care department is transforming its delivery to ensure residents have a life, not a service.  We are working with third sector and home care partners to build on their pre-existing relationships with residents to deliver some Care Act 2014 duties, supported by a Professional Standards Academy.  Organisations who already provide advice, care and support to local people are now completing Care Act assessments and reviews on behalf of adult social care, supported by health and social care colleagues in Bexley Care, the local health and social care partnership. This innovative way of delivering the Care Act has been implemented over the last year and a long-term contract is set to begin in November 2022.  Alongside these exciting changes, working for  Bexley provides access to a number of benefit schemes and programmes.




Bexley offer a competitive salary and multiple staff benefits, including:

- competitive pay – performance-related pay, bonus and transparent salary scales

- generous annual leave – 23 to 32 days, with the option to buy more every year

- flexible working – including opportunities for job sharing, compressed hours and career breaks
