Meet Nightshift Care Worker, Graeme
Existing Kibble Child and Youth Care Worker, Graeme has worked the nightshift for 15 years and found the role rewarding. Previously, Graeme was a nightshift forklift driver before starting a career working with children and young people at youth and football clubs. He then came across a vacancy at Kibble and hasn’t looked back.
It was his life experience and the skills he had learned as a parent that helped make him suitable for the nightshift job.
I had life experience and a drive to help young people, which are some of the qualities Kibble look for in their staff. I’m very close with my own kids and think the skills you learn as a parent such as empathy, patience and the courage to do what’s right for the person you care for no matter what, are extremely valuable in this line of work.
I can’t praise Kibble highly enough as a charity, a social enterprise and as an employer.
Graeme shares that an important part of the role is to be a listening ear to young people.
“Everyone knows what it’s like to have thoughts and memories running through your head, making it hard to sleep. We are there to listen and comfort those in our care.”
Personally, Graeme finds the role rewarding and would encourage others to apply.
