As Ann Marie explains below, nothing comes close to the feeling you get when you are helping to change someone’s life: ‘I love that the job is different every day. This is not your usual 9 to 5, its more personal you can build meaningful relationship with people. The job is rewarding in itself and I love knowing that I make a difference in someone’s life’ Ann Marie, Support Worker
This is a great opportunity to make a real difference to somebody’s life and gain experience working within the social care industry.
