My role

After being a full-time mum and housewife for 13 years, it is great for me to have chosen a career that allows me to show my caring nature and be a part of a team. For the first nine months at Compassionate Care, I worked hard as a support worker and was then promoted to Team Leader; a job I really enjoy which is developing my skills further.

 

My experience

Before having my children, my working life started at a travel agents, then I worked as a junior receptionist, progressing through various roles – secretary, Team Leader, Personal Assistant, Office Manager and most recently working in a Human Resource department, which I really enjoyed.

 

Rewards and challenges

So far, I have met some lovely ladies and gentlemen with different needs. I love sitting listening to their life stories, taking them shopping or just going for a pleasant trip out, maybe for something to eat or a short walk. My reward is their smiles!
