What it’s like to work here: personal perspectives from children’s social workers

We’ve asked a number of our staff and teams to tell us honestly what it’s like to work in the children’s services team at South Gloucestershire Council.

We’ve highlighted a range of different perspectives, from the first impressions of newly qualifieds, to our head of service; from those who we’ve welcomed from other authorities, to others who have grown their careers with us.
