About Social Work

If you’re looking for a career where you can make a significant difference to people’s lives, then you can’t go past the sometimes demanding, yet incredibly rewarding, vocation of social work.

Social work can be as interesting, diverse and unpredictable as society itself. As a community worker you might advocate for immigrants and refugees or work to improve quality of life standards for remote Indigenous communities; as a counsellor you could help grieving families within hospitals or provide family counselling; and as a caseworker you might empower people with disabilities, assess and respond to risks for children or support people with substance addictions.

Each of these roles involves empathy, ethics and the ability to make some difficult decisions, but they also have positive social change as the reward, and not every career can boast that.
