Bobby, a senior support worker, talks about his role with our Family Support Service and Kerry talks about her career with Positive Futures from joining as a relief support worker through to being a Service Manager.
At Positive Futures, we know a satisfying career isn’t all about money – but it certainly helps. That’s why we’re paying £9 an hour for Support Workers. It corresponds with the Real Living Wage and is one of the highest in the sector.
But money is only one of the ways in which we show how much we value our staff. When you work with us, we offer much more than just a job. We like to think that you become part of a family. We give you support, flexibility, full training and promotion prospects.
In return, we’re looking for people with patience and a caring disposition who don’t mind a challenge. We’re looking for someone who finds reasons why something can be done, rather than reasons why it can’t.
If you’re currently in a different career, don’t let that put you off. Some of our staff have had previous roles as firefighters, police officers and transport workers. What they have in common is that they wanted to make a real difference to people’s lives while enjoying a high degree of job satisfaction. If you feel the same way and have some experience of caring (even for a close relative) then Positive Futures could be the place for you. if you would like to hear more about what our staff have to say about working for Positive Futures click here.
