Every day, social service professionals go to work not just to do our jobs, but to do good as well. By reaching out to support others, we inspire positive change and empower people to lead their lives with dignity.
You plan and implement social service programmes with the long-term goal of helping clients achieve self-reliance. These programmes are diverse, ranging from youth learning to skills for seniors.
You provide crucial leadership as well as oversee the development and daily operations of the centres. You may also be required to manage a team of staff, depending on the size of the agency.
