I enjoy my role, meeting new team members and interacting with my fellow colleagues. I am very happy in my role and look forward to furthering my career with Pacific Care.
I began working for Pacific Care 4 years ago as a care assistant and have now progressed to a Senior Carer. Previously I worked as a retail manager; I was made redundant and was interested in starting a career in the care environment. I had no experience but the skills that I thought I could bring to the role were patience and understanding and being a good team player. With training and encouragement from the management team and my colleagues, I obtained my SVQ 2 and I am now progressing towards achieving my SVQ 3. I had the opportunity to apply for the Moving & Handling trainer for which I was successful.
