I am a newly qualified social worker with a BA in Social Work from the University of Leeds. Colleagues have described me as responsible, communicative and efficient. Having completed three university placements has made me flexible and easily adaptable to new situations. I am able to work well as part of a team, but also on my own as I have previously done in my placements. Additionally, I am experienced in working in accordance with relevant legislation and guidance.
I hold a valid driving license and am HCPC registered.
