The COMPASS Jobs Fairs in Birmingham and London and The Social Work Show in Manchester are the UK’s largest social work recruitment events offering invaluable CPD opportunities. 

COMPASS events are designed for organisations and individuals to network with like-minded people within the sector. Social workers and social work students can attend these events for free, with access to an extensive conference programme as part of each event, providing exclusive training and insight to update their CPD, and opportunities to enhance their career progression.


Social Work Today is the media partner for this global online conference and movement, entitled Co-building a New Eco-Social World: Leaving No One Behind. 

The international four-day summit brought together individuals and communities, people with lived experience alongside global organisation to discuss and distil shared local and global values, policies and practises for a new eco-social world that leaves no one behind as we emerge from the pandemic.
