A job with very high case loads

This was a front line job that was very demanding with high case loads of 30 to 34 cases at the time. There was a very high staff turnover due to the high complex case loads and also the confronting nature of front line experiences. The job was very statutory in nature due to our legislative requirements. It also involves reunifying children with their parents when they make good progress with the prescribed case plans set for them.

Pros

free coffee

Cons

high case loadss

N/a

it was busy. i learned a lot especially working with a different range of clients. I got along well with my co-workers including management. having to make hard decisions or being left out of the decision making process. Getting to do different things everyday and always working with different people that includes clients and stakeholders.
