“The challenges are by far outweighed by the opportunities. I thought independent work would be a temporary spell but after 14 years I’ve come to the conclusion that getting a ‘proper’ or ‘permanent’ job is not going to happen. I have never regretted it, I love what I do.”

Gillian Leake, Independent Social Worker and Locum Social Worker.
