10 years on and I’m loving it!
Congratulations to Jo, at Holland House, who was recently joined by people she supports to celebrate her 10 years with Consensus, they took great pride in presenting her long service award. From a non-care background Jo has flourished in her role.
Here, Jo Gavin reflects on Ten Years with Consensus and Holland House
“I had moved to the area and my neighbour told me I’d be an ideal person to work for Consensus, with my bubbly personality.
I got the job and loved it, I’ve had so much help and support from everyone I’ve worked with at several homes within the PWS sector, whilst working my way up to Team co-ordinator.
I feel rewarded when I get a thank you from team members, I’ve helped to develop, or when I help support an Individual realise a dream, in fact one of my favourite moments was when a gentleman wanted to scuba dive with sharks, he saved up, completed the safety tuition, and did it, without even being scared, the smile of his face when he came out was unbelievable, I was so pleased for him. The gentleman has since passed away, so that memory is an especially nice one, I also took him to Krakow on holiday as he loved his history, it was so beautiful there that I went the following year with my husband.”
