What our social workers say about working for us...

Linda in a workspace


My managers are incredibly relatable mentors who really want the best for their team. Thanks to them, I have opportunities to explore my identity as a social worker.

Flexible and hybrid working means I can be at home when my children get in from school, and still do a great job for the families I support.

The support from managers is great, and my career has progressed so quickly from newly qualified to where I am now.

My career has really progressed since moving to Norfolk. I'm also involved in helping international social workers to transition their skills and settle into a new community.
