    I worked at Southwark Council full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent training dept, prospects & promotion were good for staff. A diverse workforce that reflected the borough. Diverse & dynamic.

    Overall a LA that invested in it's staff, had a vision for the future. Well resourced, committed managers, who were helpful, flexible & supportive.

    Cons

    Very high levels of deprivation, transient population. A difficult place to be a front-line social worker. But an authority that liked to see things through.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that your staff are your greatest asset. Remember to keep investing in the future...
