Why our current team loves working for Norfolk

A quote from educational psychologist Emma

I love working in a friendly and supportive team, having opportunities to work in a huge variety of schools across the county, ranging from larger schools in the city to quiet and picturesque village schools in the beautiful Norfolk countryside.

A quote from new educational psychologist

I am new to the service and already feel very supported by a nurturing group of people who show incredible commitment to improving the lives of children, young people and their families.

A quote about commute to work

My commutes are beautiful, no day is ever boring, I work in THE best team who are unfailingly supportive, we care about children, about families, about schools, about each other.

A quote about being an educational psychologist

Being part of a high quality, multi-disciplinary team of colleagues and having the opportunity to make a real difference rather than making profits. Also having the potential to help people develop in our profession.
