Your career development

We offer a comprehensive induction programme that will enable you to understand the vision in Adult Social Care in Hackney. We will pair you with a ‘buddy’ to support you in this initial period of your employment with us. 

Your line managers will support you to identify your professional aspirations and career development goals, and how they will be met. We’ll also provide you with training and regular check-ins with your manager.  

You’ll have an opportunity to be seconded to other areas in Adults to gain new skills and knowledge. In addition, we’ve also developed an innovative Hackney Adult Services Practice Academy, where each faculty is set up to support and guide you through your career journey in  Adult Services.

We’re determined to provide you with the right level of support and take regular supervision seriously. There are a number of forums you will be able to access that will provide you with an opportunity to develop your practice, discuss complex cases and enhance your legislative knowledge.

“My managers are fantastic, and I think I would really be struggling with the workload without them. They genuinely care about my wellbeing and are hugely supportive of how I work best. I could not ask for more from them.” – Comment received from our wellbeing survey.
