“A job that makes you feel like you make a difference”

People want to work at St Christopher’s in order to make a difference to young people’s lives. But we also invest in our staff so they can learn new skills, progress in their job and represent the best of their profession.

Find out more as Ben our Aftercare Manager tells his story.


Why did you want to work at St Christopher’s?

I joined St Christopher’s over 10 years ago. Before this I worked for a Payroll Company. I struggled for motivation here as I never saw it as an Industry that I wanted to be in. I decided to start looking for roles where I felt I was helping people. With a past of coaching young people in football, cricket, kayaking and wheelchair basketball I felt that St Christopher’s would be a good fit with my personal values.

What do you enjoy about your job?

Seeing young people succeed. I have been lucky enough to work with some incredible Young People over the years and now working in Aftercare seeing them thrive living independently shows all the work everyone has done during their time in care.

What other development opportunities have you had?

I did the Leadership Passport a few years ago and completed my Level 5 whilst as Team Leader of the Aftercare Team.

What is next in your career?

To continue to learn in my new role as Aftercare Manager and to build relationships with Landlords and other professionals involved in the lives of Care Leavers.

What would you say to someone interested/ looking to join the profession?

I would say that if you want a job that makes you feel like you make a difference to people’s lives then this is the job for you. It can be hard at times but the good times massively outweigh the bad.
