Jenny Simons

We are listened to

"The working ethos here is outstanding – we have regular listening events and working groups to voice our concerns and ideas – I really feel listened to."

Time dedicated to supporting teams

"I have worked in other authorities and what stands out in Oxfordshire, in particular, is the fact that managers are always visible and available in the office – I have rarely found that in other authorities. You regularly see the Principal Social Worker and the Area Service Manager. Senior Managers obviously dedicate a lot of time to support the teams they work with and this makes you feel appreciated, supported and valued."

Staff are protected

"I work in a protected environment – I always have people to go to if I need support and professional development is encouraged to enable me to do my role as best as I am able to."

A great training network

"Oxfordshire is at the forefront of continuous professional development. There is a brilliant training network and flexibility to go to training conferences. Professional development is definitely encouraged."
