Bluecare have been superb. Being a locum can sometimes be a lonely experience but my Bluecare recruitment consultants have always been on the other end of the phone whenever I've had any questions, or just wanted to call up for a chat.
(PRWeb UK) November 3, 2010
Bluecare, one of the UK’s leading recruitment agencies for qualified social workers and care professionals, is delighted to announce that Davinia Miln, one of its long term locums, has been named Social Worker of the Year 2010 by the British Association of Social Workers.
The company said that Davinia’s success demonstrates the expertise and dedication of agency social workers, as well as the vital role they play in helping service users on the frontline of social care. Three Bluecare social workers were also nominated for the prestigious award in the 2009 ceremony.
Davinia has been working through Bluecare for over seven years. She has been in her current position, as Reviewing Officer specialising in Dementia Care for Richmond upon Thames Council, for over six years.
Davinia was chosen ahead of fifteen other short listed social workers in recognition of her skill, dedication and her strong commitment to helping and empowering service users, throughout the course of her thirty year career at the frontline of social work.
Miles Davis, Managing Director of Bluecare, said:
“We are absolutely delighted that Davinia has won this well-deserved recognition. At a time when the UK’s social care sector is facing the dual challenge of rising demands and tighter budgets, it’s great to see proof of the integral role that agency social workers play in maintaining frontline services. It’s also proof that Bluecare is fortunate to boast the UK’s most experienced and talented social workers on our books.”
“I’m delighted to have won this award. For me, personalisation is the key to what I do – I try to empower service users by giving them options and letting them have as much control over their care as possible.
“Bluecare have been superb. Being a locum can sometimes be a lonely experience but my Bluecare recruitment consultants have always been on the other end of the phone whenever I’ve had any questions, or just wanted to call up for a chat.”
