Today we’re meeting Assistant Director Steve.
I have worked for Nexus Fostering since May 2003, working my way up from Supervising Social Worker to Area Manager, and now to Assistant Director. It has been a long and interesting journey watching the agency, team, and carers develop and to now see that from our small beginnings we look after more than 400 children across the middle of England!
At present, I oversee the 2 teams based in Anglia; Norwich and Wymondham, and the team based in Central at Cambridge. I am the agency’s training manager and an agency ambassador for ‘Preparation for Independence.’
Before working for Nexus Fostering I worked for a brief time with another IFA and as a front line social worker for the local authority.
Prior to social work I spent 8 years working with Lotus Cars, so I had a big career change!
As you will see from my picture, running and keeping fit is a long-term passion alongside music. The Nexus Fostering running vest is optional!!
