Specialist Social worker in Torquay
on 13 November 2019
Worked in the adoption team.
Office environment. worked for agency, not permanent. full time.days varied. Enjoyed working with people and undertaking assessments. Locality was very good. I was very familiar with Torbay , given I worked for them 18 years ago. It was interesting to see other social workers I knew. Adoption specialism I learned a lot from and would return to adoption work. Adoption team Torbay folded up and became the South West Adoption Team which involved 4 LA's.

Children's Social Worker. Exhausting,
Love working with children and families and have over 20 years experience but had to leave as caseloads high (never had a full weekend off in 4 months and social workers do not get paid overtime) management chaotic and obsessed with spreadsheets. Never had supervision. My manager wasn't from the area and did not know how anything worked and never replied to emails or wanted to hear about my families!sl

A very poor organisation
They are very unorganised, have a lot of agency staff who only stay for short periods large turnover of staff, and move staff around a lot. Felt very unsupported

An excellent place to be a developer in Torquay
With a good salary and relaxed working conditions, this is a great place to work in my field, however it's the people with really make it special. The hours are also very flexible.
