Working at Involve is a great pleasure and a privilege. I am surrounded by a diverse team; all intelligent and friendly people. I started at Involve as an administrative assistant two days a week, and now I am a senior manager with a lot of responsibility. Involve have allowed me to flourish, and have supported and encouraged me in my career progression. They are a champion of employees, and would recommend them as a great organisation to work for!
I found Involve to be a very creative organisation, a community based charity supporting local people but also highly adaptable and interesting to work for. My manager, Danny, was fantastic; I had a lot of autonomy to run the service but always had his support and encouragement. The atmosphere at Involve is open and friendly, my colleagues were great sources of knowledge and highly-skilled. Whilst Involve has the benefits of being a small organisation in many ways, so you get to know everyone quickly and can put your stamp on things, it is also professionally managed with carefully considered processes in place which made my job a lot easier. Above all, I felt like we were actually making a difference to the lives of the older people we worked with; I have met some amazing people and seen people transform growing in confidence and happiness, it’s been very fulfilling. I absolutely loved working for Involve and only left this organisation to relocate to be closer to my family – I will miss it!
