I began working at OFC in January 2020. Extremely quickly I discovered support work was so rewarding. The honour of being trusted with the customers is truly humbling. I knew this was my forever choice of work.
There is never a day, even an hour when the customers are not laughing whilst learning and achieving new skills.
Little did I know promotion to a supervisory level would be offered to myself.
In 2022 I completed my Level 3 in Health and Social care; I found the qualification interesting and informative. Having been promoted to Trainee manager I have begun my Level 5 qualification. My colleagues’ continued support and guidance has been important to me.
Oaktree farm is never quiet, the range of opportunities are endless for all our customers. The reward is seeing each and every one of them grow in confidence, skills and do it with amazing smiles on their face.
Each customer I believe grows in a different way; from day to day they thrive and achieve new goals in being confident and independent.
I look forward to the future with Oaktree, not just my future but that of every customer we support
