The pandemic has been a real challenge, maybe the hardest in our history, but our adult social care teams have advanced as a result.

We have great progression pathways and training opportunities

We offer a comprehensive Learning and development programme with opportunities to develop specialisms like Practice Educator and AMHP courses.

"My manager supported me to develop my career by attaining post qualifying qualifications at partner University ARU which has helped me to progress on the leadership ladder" Mariama, Team Manager, Transfer of Care

We have a great culture where social workers feel safe in their practice

We are a learning organisation - sometimes the best learning comes when you don’t get it right. We turn mistakes into positive learning experiences and are always supporting each other.

"I am part of a very supportive team and this, I think, makes a big difference to social work practitioners who encounter many challenges in their work. The personal qualities of my colleagues and the supportive atmosphere in the team creates a great ethos" - Stuart, Social Worker, Adult Social Care Team

We have committed to enhancing Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI)

We have an inclusive culture and have launched a range of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion initiatives to help us promote this. Having a diverse workforce is of the utmost importance; especially in terms of shared learning, discussing caseloads and achieving the best outcomes for the people who use our services.

"Our EDI initiatives and events aim to give people space to be themselves" - Peter Shelton, Head of Social Work, Adults and Specialist and Wellbeing Champion

We have changed the way we work with more flexible and remote working

We are working to a hybrid model at present, with part-remote and flexible options available in line with our service needs. This gives our social workers a quiet space and plenty of time for reflection. It has also increased our social worker’s autonomy and has a positive impact on wellbeing and work-life balance.

"The flexibility is a really positive thing, there is the option to go into the office or remain at home. This has enabled me to have a great work life balance and is good for my wellbeing". Charlotte, Social Worker, Adult's Social Care Team

We have inspirational team managers

We have supportive team managers to help facilitate a culture of trust and autonomy whilst supporting social workers to thrive in their roles.

"The managers are really open to question and chats, It's amazing how much support and flexibility they give to people dealing with personal circumstance. The managers take on board what you want to do as a practitioner - you can tell them what areas you like or what areas you want to develop and they will givy you that type of work. It's very forward thinking" - Musharraf, Adults Team
