Hi I am Mary. I started with Enable as a volunteer in 2009, as it was an industry that I was interested in. I had recently completed my degree in Psychology and Sociology and a graduate diploma in Psychology and was interested in gaining some experience with adults with learning disabilities in order to move my career forward. It was a post that I just loved from the start and found incredibly rewarding. I am so happy when I was offered a full time job a year later and of course I jumped at the chance and I have never looked back. Before this I had a couple of jobs within the catering industry, including management roles, which made me realise that I loved meeting people from all walks of life.
To start with I worked in most areas at Enable and really enjoyed every day that I have been here. Each and every learner is different and can really brighten up your day in every way possible; I really mean it when I say that no two days are the same.
In 2015 I stepped up to the role of Centre Manager, and I have really enjoyed the challenges that this has brought with it. I have completed my NVQ level 3 and 5 in Leadership and Management which has really helped me to gain a better knowledge and experience around being a manager. I can truly say that I love my job and am so glad I chose to work in this industry.
