"I felt motivated and inspired by the ethos of reablement and the positive impact it can have on people’s lives. So now I am in a role that I love; interpreting policies and explaining them in simple and creative ways, reviewing and shaping processes and helping others to work as effectively and as productively as they can."

"I can truly see the value of the work my team and I do. Having worked in hospital wards, in community care and seeing my Nan benefit from the care she needed at home gives me a unique perspective. It’s lovely to be in a job that offers so much personal reward."

"When Hampshire County Council Adults’ Health and Care offer opportunities for progression, they mean what they say! I don’t feel my journey is over yet. Don’t let a lack of experience put you off. If you aspire to a particular role or specialism, make your case and discuss how you can achieve your goal. ‘Go for it!’, that’s what I say."

“The learning & development opportunities are endless. But most of all I am so grateful for the support, encouragement, understanding (and not forgetting friendship), I am given by my management and the team. I could not be prouder of all my colleagues and everything they do for our HCC residents. Simply put, I am very happy to be part of this brilliant team!”
