Kim - Advanced Practitioner in our South Locality

Kim says she was drawn to the Trust due to its reputation of “experienced and committed workers and managers,” which she says is “hugely reassuring.”

After qualifying as a Social Worker in 2006 and gaining employment at another local authority, where Kim remained for 12 years before she had reached a stage in her career where she wanted to progress alongside gaining new experiences and new challenges.

Initially drawn to the Trust’s ‘modern’ way of mobile working and the keen motivation to support professional development. Kim started working with the Trust in September 2018.

“I do not regret my decision and I can truly say I have felt so welcomed by the Trust.”

Being welcomed with open arms, colleagues proved to be friendly and helpful and the team dynamics are supportive and happy. Kim reports that she has had consistent good managerial oversight, support and regular supervision.

“Senior colleagues are always contactable and approachable and they are visible, often visiting the base ensuring staff feel valued and listened to.

“I particularly like how the Trust promotes their own Family Group Conferences and the Children’s Advocacy service; there is a real sense that we all working together and that safeguarding is everybody’s responsibility.”

Since working for the Trust Kim has noted the numerous secondments that colleagues have been offered and feels the Trust strive to support professional development.

Taking advantage of the development opportunities available at the Trust, Kim completed two six month secondments acting up as an Advanced Practitioner.

“These secondments allowed me opportunity to gain further experience and knowledge about the role of an Advanced Practitioner which led to my decision to apply for a permanent post in April 2020, in which I was successful.”

She goes on to further say: “This is a key strength of the Trust offering opportunities for you to develop, alongside great colleagues and partner agencies.”
