Progress, the name really is in the title! Since I arrived in week one, I have never looked back. I feel as though I have worked here 5 years, not 5 months and that is due to being welcomed with such a family orientated vibe. Progress really does make you feel at home, just without your pyjamas on! Since joining, I have been on what I would call a fabulous whirlwind. I have already learnt many skills I never even knew I had and have been pushed to limits that are now shaping my focus as a manager.

The support network of every individual in the company has been exceptional and those special few who have gone above and beyond to support my development in my new role, you’re a bunch of incredible people. My new role as the Home Manager has given me the ability to share my skills and passion with my staff team in order to provide the best possible support to the young people. Making them laugh daily, challenging them to overcome their personal obstacles and be a safe haven for them when they need it most. For me, this is and always has been the most important part of any job and will continue to be so throughout my career. The young people in our care are the focus of everything we do and it is reassuring to work for a company that share the same focus, values and passion of supporting children and young people.
