Inside opinions

“I’ve been here since I first qualified and I’ve always had a level of support that has made me want to progress and help me progress. The supervision has been focused on my development as much as case management, and that’s really helpful.”

Emma Church

Consultant Social Worker – Children’s Social Care

“We encourage people, whatever their grade, to bring their ideas to the table and progress within the organisation. As a senior manager I am given the freedom to work on my own initiative but I always know the support is there if I need it…Somerset is a fantastic place to live, there is a real feeling of community and it is beautiful part of the world. I lovely countryside helps me feel relaxed when I come home from work.”
