Can I Progress Within Thera?
There are many opportunities to advance within Thera. Many of our Team Coordinators, Community Support Leaders, and Operational Managers were Support Workers with us. We invest in your skills and provide training to support you to take the next steps in your career with us.
Leah started working as a Support Worker with Thera South West in 2004. Since then, she has progressed to become a Community Support Leader and is feeling positive about her progression with Thera.
I used to bounce around and didn’t commit to anything, but this job really made me who I am, I didn’t know I had the potential in me. Once I got into this career it kept developing.
Leah, Community Support Leader, Thera South West
