Career Start | Meet Trainee Child and Youth Care Worker, Dom - Kibble: Specialist services & support for young people facing adversity
Posted: May 16, 2023

Previously an engineer, Dom decided to change careers as he wanted a rewarding job. He is currently earning while training with Kibble.

Before joining Kibble to begin a career in Child and Youth Care, Dom was not enjoying his previous role as an engineer. Dom decided to change careers when he spotted Kibble were recruiting for people with life experience who could be a role model for children and young people who may have experienced trauma or adversity in their lives. As he learned more about Kibble, the career opportunities available and the rewarding nature of the role, Dom knew he wanted to work for Kibble.

“No matter how high paid your current job is, if you are unhappy going to work every day, change it. It took courage for me to leave my full-time job to apply for Kibble but what I do now is so rewarding.

“I come in with a smile on my face and often, I am still smiling at the end of my shift.

“Every day is different – whether it is an early shift, helping young people get up and attend school or a back shift where we plan fun experiences such as go-karting, trampolining or playing football. I make sure young people know I am always here to make them a cup of tea and have a catch-up and decide what our plans are for the week.”
