Our great benefits package

"To say that working in the Children in Care service is challenging would be an understatement. However, the knowledge and experience I have gained over the last few years will be tremendously useful as my career progresses and I don’t think I could have hoped to have joined a better team. We all know that social work is demanding but the level of job satisfaction makes up for everything. Each day is different, whether I am attending a looked after child review or completing assessments, the focus is always on the children."
