Hi, I’m Kate Dexter, Head of Social Work for the Breckland locality. I have spent over half my career at Norfolk County Council as well as other counties across the country in all areas of Children’s Services. Norfolk County Council is a special place to work, everyone works together to achieve the very best.

I am proud of the team’s commitment to improving the outcomes for children. The teams across Breckland are very friendly and the managers really support their teams to get the best out of them. We’re investing in Children’s Services over the next three years which will offer development opportunities as we transform services.

Norfolk is a fantastic place to live and work. We have two main bases in the Breckland area – Dereham and Thetford which both offer good parking, close to the town centres and are collocated with health and early help.

Breckland is a particularly beautiful part of Norfolk. Predominately rural but with not too much travelling across the area for our teams. The area has easy access to the A11 and the A47 and within easy reach of the city of Norwich. Thetford is home to the beautiful Thetford Forest with an array of activities on offer, from cycling to open air concerts. Dereham is a traditional market town with numerous restaurants and shops.

Right now, I’m looking for experienced and dedicated Level 2 Social Workers, Senior Social Workers and a Practice Consultant to join our Assessment Teams. We offer a friendly and supportive environment and look forward to welcoming dedicated and experienced social work professionals.

If you’re an experienced social work professional and like the sound of working in Breckland, I’d love to hear from you.
