An excellent way to make a living was being part of a great team and bringing to the workplace a friendly and compassionate nature
social trainer (Former Employee) – Perth WA – 13 June 2017
I enjoyed my position with the commission . I loved shift work. I loved that I made a difference to the people I supported.
I enjoyed the support with learning and development , i had a willingness to keep up to date with my skills by attending the courses that were available to us.
A typical day was showering the individuals, preparing and giving nutritious meals, supporting them with recreation and building and maintaining their skills.
The direction of the department was changing and that was very , very sad for the individuals, their families and the staff.
This became the hardest part of the job for me. We , as staff , were in that field because we cared about the people we supported but we were all getting moved around which provided no consistency . It was becoming very sad.
I took voluntary redundancy in March 2017.
it was a job that was a home away from home. was a family friendly organisation.
Only knowing my roster two weeks in advance .
