Joy - Newly Qualified Social Worker

"I was welcomed to a very helpful and supportive team. Everyone has continued helping and they have taken time to provide support no matter how busy they are. It can be daunting being a new member of staff and being a newly qualified social worker. However, everyone made it easy for me from my first day at work. There are lots of opportunities for personal development provided through training. Other things I have benefited from are weekly supervision, Newly Qualified Social Worker Workshops and ASYE sessions.  It’s all brilliant and I look forward to gaining more experience."
