Developing your career at St Mungo's

"I joined St Mungo's as an apprentice at Haringey Recovery Service. My Apprenticeship taught me so many of the skills that I have needed to work with clients in services. Taking responsibility for my own development and growth has been central to my progress. With support from my line manager I started to identify areas where I knew I needed to develop. I undertook the Level 3 Managing Volunteers qualification which provided me with a great starting point to develop my supervisory skills. I gained exposure to more senior tasks such as supporting with quarterly reporting and attending certain manager meetings. I also got involved with wider organisational activities, joining diversity networks and sitting on the Staff Advisory Board. There are so many things you can get involved in at St Mungo’s and I have developed a broader perspective of how the organisation operates."
