Not everyone loves their job – a recent survey found that only 17% of UK workers do, and a whopping 45% say they just ‘like’ it, ouch!
While we’d be a bit concerned if you loved your work as much as a partner or a pet, we do want everyone to love their careers with us.
We asked colleagues across Home From Home Care why they love it here…
“I love making a difference”
One of the most important parts of any career is that you actually enjoy the work you do, and you’re supported and rewarded for your efforts – and that’s certainly the case here:
“My job is very rewarding and I do really love it… It’s a great atmosphere and there are always opportunities to expand.” – Assistant Locality Manager, Madalynn
“It’s like a family working here” – Siddi, Support Worker
“No two days are the same… You’re getting paid to do really fun stuff!” – Lillie, Registered Manager
“Working at Home From Home Care is amazing, fulfilling, and every single day is completely different. I love it!” – Assistant Manager, Kara
“It’s a really fun environment, the hours are really good, the pay is really good…it’s extremely rewarding” – Registered Manager, James
We have a huge range of different career paths available at Home From Home Care, and more than 90 different job roles. While most people join us as support workers, people go on to follow their passions, gain new skills and interests and explore new opportunities, just as IT Project Partner, Dave and Data Intelligence Analyst, Berin have:
“The thing I love about my role is that every day is different… It’s just a fantastic place to work” – IT Project Partner, Dave
“I absolutely think that Home From Home Care is a very exciting company to work for… You have a lot of experiences and I actually make a difference in peoples’ lives.” – Data Intelligence Analyst, Berin
“It’s such a rewarding job”
Of course, every role with Home From Home has something that few other careers can offer. Here, everyone’s job has real meaning, purpose and importance because everything we do is about improving the lives of others.
Forget the great pay, amazing career prospects, flexibility and innovation we pride ourselves on; for most of our colleagues, it’s the individuals themselves who make working at Home From Home Care such a great place to be:
“I love seeing the smiles on the individuals faces when they do something amazing” – Adi, Positive Behaviour Support Partner
“I enjoy coming to work, the individuals are amazing…I love it!” – Jack, Positive Behaviour Support Partner
“Seeing how the individuals have progressed and take part in more and more activities” – Steve, Learning & Development Manager
“I really enjoy working with the individuals… and bringing a smile to their faces!” – Damini, Support Worker
“At Home From Home Care, the drive is always to evolve which makes it an exciting place to work. It’s such a rewarding job and I love making a difference to the lives of the individuals we support” – Michelle, Assistant Manager
Whether it’s the huge sense of achievement in helping a person to thrive, achieve their personal goals and overcome their physical or mental challenges, or just the joy in making someone’s life a little happier, as Positive Behaviour Support Partner, Katie says, there’s no other reward like it:
“I love the sense of achievement I get from working here.… It makes me really proud to work for Home From Home Care, knowing you are making such a difference to the lives of the individuals we support.”
