At Spectrum, we like to hire people from a variety of backgrounds and careers – a caring nature is what is most important. Just as anyone else would, our service users connect to different types of people from different walks of life. All our team are given full training before starting work and continue training throughout their employment.
Here is what a member of staff said about working for us:
"I can honestly say I have never looked forward to working for as long as I have here. I can't explain how rewarding it is when a service user struggles with a particular activity or is stuck in a routine and you spend hours, days, weeks or even months helping them work through it, then they turn a corner and they're just so happy with themselves. It's fantastic! But you are only assisting them; they do all the hard work themselves. That is the beauty of being a care support worker, you support them to care for themselves; their own independence grows."
