A typical day at work involves visiting people who live in their own houses with support from staff teams; answering emails and meeting managers, talking to colleagues, delivering staff training, and planning and delivering quality auditing visits.
I have learned what it is to work for a company where people with learning disabilities really do lead the company, check its quality and have a real say.
The company is well led, with managers who believe in the values of the organisation.
The hardest part of the job is the fact that recruitment is a challenge in this line of work. But once people come to work for Thera, they tend to love it.
I learned how not to trust people. No central support from so called Head Quarters who are so out of touch with their subsidiaries and lack to support management in those areas from top down to support worker. Good for clients or people supported. The hardest part of the job is being recognised and having a good idea or opinion being respected or even listened to. Enjoyable part was leaving this company well behind and thankfully finding a company in the same industry with some element of savy. Workplace culture is backstabbing, undermining and undervalued of its staff and subsidiaries. Senior managers and founders so out of touch. STAY WELL CLEAR.
