Our vision to provide creative solutions for complex needs to deliver as ‘normal a life as possible’ is made possible by the teams of people who support our residents on a daily basis.
A unique set of values ensures our people can stand up and advocate for our customers to ensure their life always remains as ‘normal a life as possible’.
Working as a kitchen hand at Synovum Care Wynyard I was keen for a career change.
I expressed my interest in applying for one of the new House Companion positions, working with and caring for the elderly in a small scale living environment.
My overall goal would be to gain a permanent role as a House Companion.
We work with you to determine how this can happen
The management provided the opportunity for me to apply for a House Companion position and encouraged me to do so.
After the application process I was employed as a back-up House Companion.
Whilst I was training for the new position Synovum Care covered my usual shifts as a kitchen hand.
We provide support to enable you to achieve this
I have received support for my career goals through internal and external training, encouragement, opportunities to interact with the other House Companions, time to express my ideas and concerns as well as solutions.
They [management] have been available throughout the training and have continued to be available for any questions.
