Team Leader Emergency Duty Team
‘Working as a Team Leader in the out-of-hours Emergency Duty service suits my lifestyle of wanting to be involved with children, families, and vulnerable adults when it matters most when they need an emergency response in a crisis. Strong emphasis on supervision training and emotional support a prerequisite helps create a sense that you are never alone. I enjoy being a Team Leader and working in an environment that is fast-paced and requires me to think ‘outside the box,’ and certainly keeps me on my toes! EDT (Emergency Duty Team) provides a safeguarding service for all residents of Warwickshire and at times this results in having to think creatively, within the boundaries of legislation and continues to support my personal development and move into management. Staff whom I support have a wealth of experience, knowledge, and skills. Each day is different, and each member of staff in EDT is a privilege to work with’.
Proud to announce our Good Ofsted report!
