  • work closely with other professionals such as doctors, nurses, parole officers and teachers to develop strategies to assist clients
  • co-ordinate the activities of volunteers and co-workers with less experience

Community and Social Service Workers may also be required to

  • participate in formal discussions about work processes or program improvement
  • monitor the work performance of others
  • teach others how to do a task
  • train new employees
  • make hiring recommendations
  • give tasks to other workers
