Why we love working at Rapport...
“I joined Rapport Housing & Care in the capacity of housing support worker at Rosewell House in June 2021. More and more I found myself assisting the housing officers with the work they had left over at the end of the day and over time I thought this was something I’d like to progress to. As soon as I mentioned that I wanted to take these steps, I was supported by both the head of housing and the learning and development team. I’ve now been at Meadow View Court as the Housing Officer since June 2022, it was a bit of a challenge undertaking two courses and starting a new role at the same time, but it was a good challenge and I’m looking forward to developing my knowledge in the role.”
“Working at Barnes Lodge is very much like one big family. I absolutely love knowing we are all doing something positive and making our residents happy, especially during the pandemic. I have been in social care for 25 years, I love the staff and we are such a strong team. When I see our residents happy, that means the world.”
