My Journey with Daffodil Care

Starting my journey with Daffodil Care

Daffodil Care was recommended to me by a fellow student during my third year of college while seeking a work experience placement. Daffodil Care were kind enough to facilitate my placement, and I had a very positive experience and learned a great deal. Soon after, I applied for a position as relief staff, and this was followed by a full-time position three months later. Since then, I have progressed to the role of Social Care Leader and am part of the training team for Daffodil.

As with any new career, and equally with each new role I have taken on, I met with a few challenges along the way, but the training programmes provided by Daffodil have been invaluable and very practical. Whenever I’ve sought guidance or wanted support, it has always been forthcoming from my manager, Aileen, and my other teammates.

I find the work extremely rewarding in and of itself, but on a day-to-day basis, I most enjoy my interactions with the young people themselves and facing challenges together.

Daffodil Care is an excellent choice for those who want to reap the benefits of continuous professional development through training, as well as opportunities for career progression. More than anything though, Daffodil Care is the right choice for those who are enthusiastic about taking a solution-focused approach to meeting the needs of young people and working with them for the best possible outcome.
