We really value all of our staff members, and we work hard to make sure they know it. When you notice that a colleague has done something great in their work with mirus, you can nominate them for a ‘mirus moment’. Each month we pick a deserving winner from each region that we work in based on your nomination, and they’ll get a shout out on social media and win a £20 gift voucher. Awesome.
Each year we hold local celebration events for staff members, volunteers and people we support who’ve achieved something great during the year; these winners and other people who have been nominated go on to be entered into our ‘mirus stars’ awards. The mirus stars awards event is a big fancy occasion that is held annually and celebrates all of our achievements from the year. It’s a great chance to dress up and meet up with colleagues, volunteers and people supported from all areas that we work, celebrate our winners, and catch up with friends.
You’ll be encouraged to share your positive stories with other staff members in our staff Facebook group and on social media, so that even more people recognise the valuable work you’re doing with mirus.

All of our learning and development opportunities come with paid training time, so you’ll earn as you learn.
