Get Involved

Jacaranda has been placing social workers and social care staff in the UK for 10 years. We wouldn’t be where we are today without numerous people supporting and assisting us. Candidates recommend our service to their friends, promote new vacancies and present at job fairs. We also offer practical placement in our office in Central London.

 

And now, guess what … there is still a lot of room for you to get involved. You can gain some work experience abroad, be interviewed by a newspaper, earn vouchers in exchange for some simple promotional help. All of these activites help to pep up your CV.

If you are intereted, read on!

This is your chance to get involved at our office in London Bridge. We are looking for dynamic, motivated and enthusiastic interns to join our close-knit team for a period of 3 months or more.

You should have a business (marketing, business admin, international relations) related qualification or similar and speak English and one other European language (German, Romanian and Swedish preferable) fluently.


In return, we will offer you an insight into working life in the UK. We will give you the opportunity to gain more experience in an international office, to improve your professional and practical skills - and improve you business English.

We provide an induction, ongoing training and regular supervision. For more information, have a look at the Jacaranda-intern leaflet.

Doing Press Work

Jacaranda Recruitment has always had good media coverage, be it in newspapers and news magazines, the radio or even in TV – see press stories. As readers are usually most interested in other people stories, we are always looking for candidates who would be happy for us to contact the press with their story. If you would like to discuss, let us know!

Write an Experience Story

We are always keen to learn how you are getting on once you have started your social work job in the UK. Maybe you even want to go a step further and share your experience with people interested in working with us in the future. We would be more than happy, if you could write an experience story! Have a look at some of the experience stories, candidates placed by Jacaranda wrote in the past and contact us if you would like to share your experience with others.

Become a "Rep"

Our representative network helps us to promote our latest job vacancies and our service to social work students.

As a “rep” you will be sent material e.g. posters and job adverts, once a month for you to distribute at  on notice boards at your university. We are looking for reliable people – the time investment is minimal.

You will receive an Amazon gift voucher (20 Euro) for every 6 send-outs and we are also happy to give you a certificate about your work with us.
