When asked "Why Delta?" Jo said: Delta has provided me with so many opportunities and talent is held in high esteem and this is really important in developing and retaining staff.  We work collaboratively and I always feel that I am able to go to other people for support, as well as feeling free to offer support to others.  Ideas are welcome from anyone and I think this is important in developing a positive and successful culture. Our ethos of changing lives motivates me every day!  

Delta's core values are inspirational - in what can be a really tough job!
