Registering to work with WillisPalmer

We are the UK’s leading provider of social work and psychological services, and our reputation is built on the quality of the professionals who register with us.

Our high standards mean that working with WillisPalmer isn’t for everyone. But if you have the skills, qualifications and experience, we’d encourage you to get in touch today.

The process

Our registration process is extremely thorough and allows us to determine whether we are a good fit for you and if you are a good fit for us.

Once we have received your CV, completed application form and anonymised report (if applicable), we will check that you meet our standard requirements. When your application is accepted, you will then be invited to one of our recruitment events held regularly in Colchester, Essex.

The purpose of the recruitment event is for you to understand the WP vision and the types of services we provide; we individually interview each attendee and learn more about your skills and experiences – it’s a perfect opportunity to ask any questions you may have. We will also ask you to complete a written piece of work, based on a case study created by one of our Quality Assurance Consultants. Click here to view our recruitment event feedback.
