“It was good to have the overview of the organisation, and I liked the fact it began with the ethos as ethically sound social work practice is also very important to me. I felt reassured of sound and realistic processes and work allocation that offer a framework and conditions within which it is possible to deliver good quality work. This is important to me in the next step of my career. I enjoyed the quality assurance presentation and felt I related to the common dilemmas. I felt reassured of a sound fair QA process that supports the delivery of outstanding work that maintains the social worker's and the organisation's reputation.”C. Buhse - Devon, June 2019
“The presentations were informative and gave an honest overview of the range of work that WillisPalmer is involved in. It was helpful to know the background to the organisation and its representatives. This was helpful for getting a sense of the aims and values of WillisPalmer so that applicants can evaluate if have goals and skills that match those of the company.”C. Burdge - Kent, June 2019
“The presentations answered all my burning questions about working for WillisPalmer. Everyone from WillisPalmer made me feel at ease, they were all enthusiastic and approachable.”E.McCaulay - Lincoln, June 2019
“I found all of the presentations to be set out in a simple easy to understand and yet informative way. I found information to be helpful and to give a good overview of the work and practices of the agency.”I.Dickinson - Cleveland, June 2019
“I was very impressed from the outset. The website is clear and informative, and it was easy to upload the initial documents prior to the recruitment event. Each of the presenters were clear giving insight to the ethos of the organisation and the practical considerations. I was particularly taken by how the company has evolved and how the employees have grown with it; could visualise myself being part of the organisation.”ISW - Bury St. Edmunds, October 2018
"I was very impressed with the professionalism. I was keen to hear about the core values, which instils confidence in me that assessments are completed to a very high standard."M. Slamat - Surrrey, October 2018
"The presentations were structured, clear and I found it very to the point without any time been wasted. Coming from having worked for local authorities, I am used to dealing with a lot of repetition of things. It was, therefore, a breath of fresh air to see that your presentation was clear and to the point."R. Bouchiba - London, May 2018
"The presentations were interesting, informative and to the point. It gave me a really clear idea of what it would be like working with the organisation. The individual interview was informal and so gives the applicant the freedom to discuss what they think is relevant."M. Ganser - Barnet, May 2018
"My concern was that as an ISW I have already built up my own reputation, and I have not worked under an organisation before, so I wanted to make sure that your values matched mine, in terms of ethical considerations, pride in my work, accountability, professionalism and maintaining my reputation. I was reassured by this from Mark and Harriet’s presentations. I felt reassured that your values do match mine and I will not feel compromised in wanting to produce good quality work. I also value the opportunity to have you QAing my reports and working as part of a team with your organisation."Paula C-N - Kent, May 2018
