There are also plenty of opportunities for career development whether this be broadening your skills or looking for promotion. We’d like to think that this is one of the many reasons staff stay working for us. There are lots of examples of staff who joined us at entry level and are now in middle / senior management positions.
Here’s Kate’s story about her career progress at mirus, from support worker to service manager:
Until my role at mirus, I’d wanted to be a police officer. However, when I started supporting people with a disability, I could see real progress that I was a part of. No matter how small the progress, it was so rewarding and I’ve never looked back.
With the support of my managers I achieved my NVQ at level 3 in Health and Social Care. Shortly after this achievement, this coupled with my support worker experience enabled me to gain a temporary assistant manager post.
