"Knowing that the work I do contributes towards improving the lives of Peterborough residents is a real driver for me. Work isn’t just about coming into the office to do the 9 to 5, it’s about wanting to make a real difference. The commitment of my colleagues in working to achieve that goal means there’s always support when you need it and a great team spirit."

Claire M, Children's Services
