Just seeing the stability we are able to give to children and young people whose lives had been so chaotic is amazing. It has made me feel reinvigorated as a social worker.
Trish Jarvis, Social Worker.
Working for us is rewarding in so many ways. Not only will you make an important contribution to the children, young people and families of Doncaster, you’ll experience an inclusive, open culture in which everyone feels valued and heard.
We are committed to providing strong and visible leadership, quality support and infrastructure and to ensuring caseloads are manageable.
Our promises to our employees:
- We will invest in you. This includes formal mentoring and training programmes to help you develop your career. We also encourage secondments, either within the Trust or with other organisations, such as the NHS, to broaden your knowledge and experience.
- We will listen to you. We encourage our staff to tell us what works and we celebrate their achievements and successes. We hold personal development meetings, team meetings and wider Trust summits where staff share ideas, raise concerns and are kept up to date with Trust developments.
- We will encourage you to use your ideas and experiences to help us do things better. Because we are independent of the local authority we have the freedom to explore more innovative ways of working. Our staff play a vital role in this and we value their experience, knowledge and passion.
- We aim to create an environment where work feels like a great place to be. The Trust has a policy of transparency and openness combined with a strong desire to do the best possible for the children, young people and families in Doncaster. We want our staff to enjoy a good work/life balance and relish the challenge of working for the Trust.
