The Council has helped Jessica progress her career as a Trainee Social Worker and make a difference to people’s lives.
Jessica has been with the Council for six years as, after starting in a business support role, she went on to become a Social Care Assessor and is now in her final year of the degree apprenticeship scheme to qualify as a Social Worker.
Jessica said: “There’s a lot of progression within the Council, a lot of different roles to work towards.
“The Council is always encouraging you to look at other opportunities within different teams.
“It’s a really supportive local authority to work for.”
Jessica is enjoying her current role and the rewards it brings.
She added: “I enjoy working with different groups, being able to support them build on their independence and help them to live a better life.
“It makes you realise how much good you can do in this job, and how you can change people's lives.
“Even just the smallest of things like supporting with accessing food banks or sorting out their transport, it's minuscule things to us but longer term makes a big difference in their lives”.
