What do you do at Carefree? 

I am part of Carefree’s Career Information, Advice and Guidance team. I work with 16-25 year olds and help them explore their employment, education and training options. I like to approach careers from a holistic perspective and encourage people to think about what sort of life they want and what we can do to support them in achieving that.

What do you like about working at Carefree? 

I enjoy meeting young people and seeing them explore and progress in life. Carefree is also a friendly and supportive place to work, my colleagues are a great bunch of people! 

Can you say a bit about your past experience and qualifications?

I have done a variety of jobs including waitressing, box office assistant, support worker and mental health youth worker. I am qualified in youth and community work and am currently doing a diploma in career guidance and development. Working with people has always been important to me, I love meeting people and getting to know them and their stories.

What do you enjoy doing when you are not working? 

I am a mum to two children and two cats and enjoy spending time with my family. I love making things and do a lot of knitting and crochet. I also collect frogs.
