ADOPTION SOCIAL WORKERS
PACT IS LOOKING FOR ADOPTION SOCIAL WORKERS TO JOIN OUR OUTSTANDING TEAM
“While I was working in a local authority I was aware of PACT and their good reputation and so I often visited the website looking for opportunities. I was really pleased when I saw an advert for a new family finding scheme and so I applied and was successfully appointed. It has been great working for an organisation where adoption is the focus in all we do and knowing that we can offer our families the most comprehensive and worthwhile support. As a staff member PACT is also innovative and allows for lots of different opportunities for its staff and I have had the chance to work in many different roles.” Mandy, PACT Adoption Team Manager
