I have used many of my old skills but have learnt many more in the process, including all online communications including Zoom and Teams, which has been great and has enabled me to get to know the clients I am supporting. Every day is a learning curve for me as I am always learning new skills, applications and software’s. I have had the privilege of being involved in many online courses in assisting my clients and in turn, I also learn new skills and information, which keep me current and up to date in this ever-changing world.” In short I have found being a support worker extremely rewarding and have even managed to keep working supporting people remotely through these trying times.”

In addition to this, being a support worker will also give me the opportunity to learn even more, meet new people and the job will provide me with a huge sense of satisfaction” because I will be helping and supporting someone daily – a very worthwhile and rewarding role.
