Why do you work for Turning Tides?

I have always wanted to work in the charity sector and after having the opportunity to work for a local charity which make an impact in my community I delved for the chance. I want to help make a difference in people’s lives for the better and working for a charity that does that is an amazing feeling.

It’s also great to work for a charity that supports you and understands that being a single mother of three can be challenging in itself sometimes! Turning Tides are flexible, encouraging and supportive I feel very lucky to find my dream job!

What do you love about your job?

I honestly love it all! I am definitely a people’s person and knowing that I get to meet and speak to so many different souls is wonderful. Throughout my working life I have worked for companies that their main desire is the financial rewards of their work but working in the volunteering team it’s about how we make an impact on people’s lives. Not only for our clients but for the volunteers themselves.

I feel so fortunate to be part of a team that allows me to learn use my initiative and creativity!

Working with likeminded people who have a common quest for change and a shared cause is really quite affirming.

What is something you are proud of?

I am proud of the opportunities that the Volunteering team give to so many individuals. Being so inclusive and non-judgemental opens so many doors for those that may have not had the chance to thrive and develop before.

I am proud that Turning Tides are a co-produced organisation, by listening and learning from those individual that have lived in the homeless community enables us to understand and help change lives, this is invaluable.

I am also very proud to be working for an award winning team!
