Hot Desk

Episode One - Hot Desk

Social Worker Clare Barker and her colleagues have to move offices and embrace hot desking. All this while Clare has a new student to wet nurse. Brian is struggling to keep control in the classroom.

Sally Phillips is Clare Barker the social worker who has all the right jargon but never a practical solution.

A control freak, Clare likes nothing better than interfering in other people's lives on both a professional and personal basis. Clare is in her thirties, white, middle class and heterosexual, all of which are occasional causes of discomfort to her.

Each week we join Clare in her continued struggle to control both her professional and private life

In today's Big Society there are plenty of challenges out there for an involved, caring social worker. Or even Clare.
