HELLO I'M...

JOB TITLE

DART (Drug & Alcohol Recovery Team) Recovery Worker (Prison)

I LIKE...

my team! I have been well supported in my role by managers and colleagues as i have sought to achieve a better work life balance as a single parent. I also like being part of a cluster and moving between sites, it ensures plenty of variety.

I DISLIKE...

being in a prison environment! it sucks! It is quite depressing although on the plus side it gives me more determination to provide a good service for the clients as I recognise it must feel much worse for them.

MY GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT...

In this role so far is being nominated for a ‘positively different’ Trust award for Innovation because of the work I’ve done.

I have never had any recognition before so it felt awesome to achieve that.

I LOOK FORWARD TO...

mondays bizarrely! we have a weekly team meeting where we have a check in. this is a place for us to voice any issues whether personal or professional and offload them and offer each other support.
