So they should: they have no job security or other perks.


What perks?

Holidays or pensions for example?

I believe we may have different ideas about perks - nay bother though.

Locally, we have a shortage of registered social workers. Children's Services are falling to bits.
It's not unusual (na na na na nah) to rely on agency social workers. One who is working with handful of my clients does a daily round trip of 300 miles!

Perhaps "perks" was the wrong word, sorry.

Do you know what proportion of their cost goes to them and what to the agency?

I haven't a clue, sorry.
