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.

Pros

Flexibility, collaboration, care

Cons

Usual pressures of the sector - but always looking for solutions which is a plus
