Hi! My name is Meg and I've been working for Caring Services since June 2021. I moved from the West Midlands last year and was searching for a job before I moved. This is when I found Caring services. I found their information on indeed and applied really easy! I was worried I wouldn't get a job as I had only worked voluntarily beforehand but Caring services offers a lot of roles which matched what I wanted.
Within 2 weeks of applying, I had a session over the phone where I spoke with Lucy about my experiences and what kind of role I was looking for; I told her I was looking for a 1:1 role within a school preferably in primary. I was offered a role before the schools broke up for the 6 weeks holiday where I would be 1:1 with a young child with ASD starting September! I had the chance to meet the child before I started and that helped both me and the child to get to know each other a bit and understand their needs. It was a perfect opportunity and, 7 months in, I absolutely love it! The staff I work with are fun, helpful and so sweet and I love the child I work with. He has made massive improvements since September and every time we reach a goal, I just feel so proud at how he is growing.
I never wake up and dread going to work and I know that if I have any issues, Rebecca and Lucy are brilliant. They understand any issues you have and will go out of their way to help and comfort you! During August 2021, I had to have a few weeks of work due to starting a new medication and although I agreed to working at a creche for a week, they understood that my health is important and told me I had nothing to worry about and hope I can return to work as soon as I'm adjusted. Quite a lot of people I work with are also with the agency and they have never said a bad thing about them and we're all extremely happy and content with our roles. I highly recommend Caring services! They are just purely fantastic and I have no complaints at all!
