I have been working at Pathways for 6 months now, I knew I had it in my heart to do the job I had always wanted to do but I thought I wouldn’t be able to academically. The amount of training and certificates I have gained whilst being here is unbelievable and I have amazed myself. The support from the management team also who always believes in me really makes the difference! To walk into a building and have the people we support shout your name or run up to you for a hug gives me the biggest smile all day. I absolutely love my job and the people I support both in the centre and in the community. It is the best decision I made to leave retail – the job is so rewarding and I go that extra mile every day just to see their faces!

I have worked for Pathways for 5 years and have been in this profession for around 39 years. Having different involvements with many companies, I have to say that the Pathways management are the most person-centred people I have encountered. They are always supportive and understanding to the needs of their staff, but most importantly their clientele. It is a pleasure to work with such person-centred people.

I have worked at Pathways for a year now and I can honestly say it’s the most enjoyable and rewarding job I have done and I’m loving it. I had never done anything like this before, and was not sure if I could do it. But the support and advice I got from the management was brilliant, they always gave me positive feedback and anything I wasn’t sure about they fully explained to me. I feel as though I can always go to them with any concerns big or small. My work colleagues have been great too, they are always there to help you with anything. It’s a great place to work.
