Staff profile – Vivienne, Receptionist
My name is Vivienne and my role within Creative Support is Receptionist in the North East.
I began working for Creative Support in 2006 as a Senior Support Worker at one of the supported living schemes purposely built for people with complex Learning Disabilities. I really enjoyed my role and found it very rewarding supporting individuals to live independently in their own homes and accessing the local community.
During my time as a Senior Support Worker I attended training relevant to my role to gain more awareness, knowledge and experience to further develop my skills. I was also encouraged to acquire an ITQ (National Vocational Qualification in IT) which I have found to be very beneficial professionally.
After gaining the ITQ qualification a position became available for reception duties, which I felt would be the ideal opportunity to develop my Administration and IT skills.
I am so pleased to have had the opportunity to change direction but still remain working for Creative Support.
