I love my job as it allows me to meet people from a variety of backgrounds, whether you used to be a hairdresser, baker or have served in the army its fantastic to hear about each individual journey and why its now the right time for each CAREGiver to move into the caring sector if they haven’t been there before or to continue doing something they love!

Kaytrina

Care Services Supervisor

I have worked in care for over 20 years working in care at home environment delivering services from personal care to home help services and feel very comfortable and confident in the care I provided. I have always enjoyed my role in the care sector and although I have tried other types of carers throughout my working life I have always found myself being drawn back to the care services.

I find this role of work very rewarding and satisfying and get to go home at the end of an evening feeling that I have been able to make a difference in someone's life.

I have previously worked in youth work and family support for over 10 years and gained a wide range of knowledge and skills, that along with my care experience gives me a variety of different types of support experience.
