Working for Havering has provided a great platform for me to further develop my practice as a social worker. Support received increases confidence allowing room to explore strengths and areas of development to reach my full potential.
If you are looking to work for the local authority who truly cares for their employees wellbeing and helps them to achieve their long term career goals then “Havering” is the only place to be.
I have worked for Havering for 25 years now, starting as a carer, then progressing. I was lucky enough for Havering to support me through the Social Work Degree.
Each team I have worked in has always been very supportive and understanding and each manager has been encouraging to improve my knowledge. They will also try and support you if you have caring obligations. A good place to work.
I like working for Havering. I feel well supported by my managers and the team as a whole. I have benefited and been supported to successfully complete the ASYE and other training, and am looking forward to further post qualifying development opportunities.
