Why work for us
When you work at Solutions Social care it’s more than just a job: you play a vital role in keeping London’s care system running, helping to ensure that everyone who needs it receives the highest standard of care and is respected and treated with dignity.
It’s rewarding and inspirational to work with an organization whose mission is to make real improvements in people’s lives and which takes that mission so seriously. Every day I get to engage directly with the people we work with in a wide range of activities that ultimately will make their quality of life everything it can be and help them in achieving their aspirations – what could be better than that?
I’ve been a Day Opportunities Worker at SSC for more than two years now, and I can say beyond a doubt it’s the best job I’ve ever had. What I find so satisfying is that I get to help people with real, day-to-day things that they find challenging and make real practical difference in their lives. I especially love the way the work pushes me to find ways to understand and relate to all people we support as unique individuals with unique needs, and to keep things simple, light and fun. SSC has given me all the training and support I could have asked for, and every day I feel empowered to do my job to the very highest standard I can.
I’ve learned so much during my years at SSC – and continue to learn new things every day!
One of the best things about working here is the resilience and determination of the team around you: it’s inspirational to see the amount of positivity and expertise they bring to helping every person we work with. The training is also really thorough and practical, and focused on real-life scenarios. And there’s a great leadership structure in place that allows good communications between everyone who works here, ensuring that all individual needs are properly registered and provided for.
I feel that my Solutions Social Care story reveals so much about the investment that’s made here in making sure staff have every opportunity they could want for progressing their career. I started as a support worker in 2015, having arrived from Spain with a degree in Psychology, and since then have been promoted to Senior Support Worker, Deputy Manager and finally Centre Manager in North branch. My goal is to become a PBS coach, and I know that SSC will do everything to support me in achieving that!
