Emergency Planning Officer in Taunton, Somerset
on 19 August 2021
Productive and motivational.
Currently learning a whole new aspect of emergency response. It is good working from home but my induction is a little difficult at times as I can't watch and learn.

A fun place to work
Overall enjoyed working for SCC only left as moving to Wales to start a new life.. All my work colleagues were spot on. Would still be there if not moving away......

Working for SCC is better than I expected
I was apprehensive working for a local authority again after over a decade in the third sector. I was worried progress would be slow and collaboration minimal. I have been so pleased to be so wrong. I've seen so much collaboration, innovation and creativity. A complete focus on the best interests of the families we support. I've been in post 6 months now, some really great training opportunities too.

Highly recommend
A great place to work, supportive team managers who you can approach with ease across all teams. Lots of accessible training with ability to specialise in areas. Full support in progressing your career in the direction you wish. Somerset now has specialised workers based in social work teams including substance misuse, DV and mental health, no more lengthy referrals and families are offered support without delay. Great team spirit with team members working together, sharing knowledge and helping each other out when needed. Job security 5*.

I have always had good support for both peers and management.
