The Children & Adults Social Care Directorate’s new Assistant Team Manager, Andrew Burt, took up his new role on Monday, 3 June 2019.
Andrew has been appointed on a two-year contract and his main duties include chairing the ‘Children in Need’ meetings, holding a small caseload of specific cases and supporting Team Manager, Adele McMahon.
Director of Children & Adults Social Care, Tracy Poole-Nandy, said:
“We are glad that Andrew has joined our growing Social Work teams on the Island in line with the needs of the service, and welcome him and his wife to St Helena. Andrew will be an asset to the team and his expertise welcomed to help us move forward with our vision for the Directorate.”
“I am looking forward to the new challenges that I am expecting in working on a remote sub-tropical Island. I have found that despite my new colleagues informing me how cold they feel, I find that 25 °C through the winter is fine by me.”
Andrew qualified as a Social Worker from Portsmouth University in 1999 and, since returning to Scotland from Hampshire, has been employed as a Locum Social Worker throughout Scotland and northern England during the last seven years.
