The fact that we have four nominees this year shows the huge wealth of talent we have in our candidate base. All four nominees are long term HCL candidates and we’re fortunate to enjoy a close working relationship with them. We’re incredibly proud of Marlene, Sue, Martin and Suzanne, and think they all deserve to walk away with the award on the night!
(PRWeb UK) October 15, 2010
HCL plc’s Social Care division, which includes Bluecare and RS Social Care, is proud to announce that four of its long-term candidates have been nominated for the prestigious Social Worker of the Year Award 2010.
The Social Worker of the Year Award recognises social work professionals for dedication and constant excellence in their discipline over a number of years. The overall winner will be decided by a judging panel and announced at an awards ceremony on Saturday 30 October in Bedford.
The HCL nominees are:
Martin Culley, a Senior Practitioner. He has experience of working on highly complex cases and mentoring newly qualified staff. Martin is a hugely valued member of staff and very supportive to his team colleagues.
Suzanne Cronley is a Children and Families social worker, working in Leeds. Over the course of her career she has shown absolute dedication to her work and has gone beyond the bounds of duty in seeking to achieve the best possible outcomes for children and families.
Sue Hollings has significant experience of working in children’s social care both in education and social services. She is known for her clear advocacy on behalf of children and young people, her excellent interaction with children and families (often in very difficult situations) and her exceptional relationships with her colleagues and peers, who often seek her professional advice.
Marlene Jean-Louis is a highly experienced specialist in child protection. She is a Senior Practitioner in a court team with highly complex child protection cases, and has represented local authorities at final hearings, legal planning meetings, professionals’ meetings, child protection conferences and adoption and permanency panels.
In addition to attending the awards ceremony, HCL Social Care has also donated a brand new state of the art digital camera as one of the prizes.
Miles Davies, Managing Director of HCL Social Care, says:
“Social workers are all too often the unsung heroes of our society, working tirelessly to help improve people’s lives with little public recognition. The Social Worker of the Year Awards is a wonderful opportunity to show our admiration and appreciation of everything that social workers do.
“The fact that we have four nominees this year shows the huge wealth of talent we have in our candidate base. All four nominees are long term HCL candidates and we’re fortunate to enjoy a close working relationship with them. We’re incredibly proud of Marlene, Sue, Martin and Suzanne, and think they all deserve to walk away with the award on the night!”
Marlene Jean-Louis, one of the nominees, added:
“I am delighted to have been nominated and selected as one of the finalists for the Social Worker of the Year Award. It is both a privilege and an honour. I would also like to thank my Bluecare consultant, Terina Tucker for her hard work, commitment and support.”
