Flexible, Fun & Rewarding
Youth Justice Support Worker (Former Employee) – Perth and Kinross – 22 August 2017
I loved this job.
It is very flexible depending on the needs of the service users whose success is largely depending on how well you can engage with them. Each case is different and can be as interesting and as intense as you make their action plan to be. It is a rewarding job most of the time, but don't expect to much recognition. Like any charity you are expected to meet statistics, but the stats are fair and usually do enhance the quality of service. A lot of time is spent doing computer work in proportion to the time spent with service users.
I didn't feel that significant to Sacro nationally, but each region has close-knit teams and they can be a lot of fun if you're easy to work with and play your part. My team leaders have all been very supportive and trusting of my work. There are a lot of moaners at Sacro, but it really isn’t a bad employer at all.
