Kate is a new edition to the Trust family having recently joined the Doncaster team during the lockdown period as l the role of Service Manager for MAAP, Children with Disabilities and Family Group Conference teams.
After various posts of team manager for the past 15 years. Kate previously worked for Doncaster in the year 2000 for almost 12 years, most of which was in the child protection teams.
When she left Doncaster she had the intention of seeing how other local authorities’ work. For the last eight years she worked for the same local authority before re-joining Doncaster and describes the Trust as a ‘very exciting new chapter!’
Over the years Kate kept in touch with some colleagues from Doncaster and after hearing many positive things she decided a year ago that she ‘wanted in!’
Kate says: “The restructure and new roles have thankfully given me that opportunity and although I loved working for my previous employer, I knew this was too good a chance to miss.”
Feeling extremely fortunate to have been able to work for the same authority for such an extended period of time, Kate wanted to feel fully part of a team and Doncaster is the place for this.
“So far I have not been disappointed and have had some lovely messages of welcome and have been greeted back to the organisation with virtual open arms!”
