Cygnet have spent the end of the year celebrating the people that work for them with their Staff Achievement Awards. Here’s what they had to say:
At Cygnet, it’s been a great end to the year. We’ve achieved a lot of success, becoming one of the largest mental health providers in the UK and our efforts have helped support thousands of individuals to make great progress on their journeys. Looking back, one standout moment that marked this quarter was our annual ‘Staff Achievement Awards’, where we celebrate and recognise our talented staff. It is a fantastic event where we share the stories of the winners and highlight how we improve lives together, every day. ‘Outwood’, in Leeds was our ‘Social Care Service of the Year’ winner, delivering great care to its’ amazing residents. The Outwood team works hard to provide a safe and supportive environment and gives the residents opportunities to live full and interesting lives. Each resident thrives and meets their goals, making the team's work even more rewarding. Well done Team Outwood.
When you’re looking for a job, care organisations’ social media sites are a great way of finding out what makes them special. So don’t forget to start following them as part of your application process and be sure to share your highlights as part of the recruitment process.
Good luck with your festive job search!
