Having moved ‘North’ in the summer of 2000 I found myself looking for work. Having cared for family members in the past I saw an opportunity with SCB and applied for a position as Workshop Assistant. During the course of the interview I was taken to the facility and was delighted to receive the offer of the position immediately. The rest as they say – is history. I can honestly say it is the best job I have ever had, and there aren’t many days when I don’t think to myself ‘we’ve done good today’. The job is demanding, and tiring, but the positive rewards you get back from the service users in seeing them develop, grow, and gain confidence far outweighs any negatives.
I have been working at the SCB facility since January 2005 and can honestly say that I love my job and get complete satisfaction from what I do. To me, being at SCB is like having an extended family. Working alongside service users on a one to one basis, teaching them new skills, and seeing them develop is so rewarding.
Since starting at SCB in March 2008, I feel like I’ve not looked back. Whilst teaching new skills to service users and helping them to develop, they in turn have helped me to grow into a better person. A smile, laughter, and their appreciation keeps me coming back for more.
Having worked in retail since leaving school I was looking for a complete career change, and came across an opportunity with SCB by mistake. However, since joining SCB in June 2013, it’s been the best mistake I’ve made! The service users never fail to brighten my day and I leave work every day with complete job satisfaction.
After I had had a tour of the workshop I knew that this was the place I wanted to be. The atmosphere was alive with each service user forming a key component of the overall activity. No big jobs, no little jobs, just an equal playing field for people to thrive in. Having worked as a support assistant and at holiday camps for adults with learning difficulties, I was drawn to SCB for the unique service it provides. Championing work skills development in a safe and happy environment was where I wanted to be.
