Andrea Green, New Head of Service at Learning Disabilities

"Having worked in my previous authority for 28 years in a variety of roles, I was ready for a change.  However the thought of moving to a new role and new working environment is always a challenging experience.

Throughout every step of the recruitment journey, from submitting my application, to the communication with the resourcing team, London Borough of Sutton helped to remove any hesitations that I initially had.

The interview process was diverse, concise and I was given the right information to get a better understanding of the Council objectives, the plan for Adult Social Care and how I would fit into making a difference to the residents of Sutton.

The induction from the people systems team was enjoyable and comprehensive, not to mention I received a Starbucks gift card as a nice welcome treat!

All of this means I am confident that I had made the right decision and I am looking forward to working with our staff to ensure adults with a learning disability can live their best and most independent life
