Supported Employment Specialist (Medway/Gravesham)

What do you love about working with bemix?

The thing I love most about working with Bemix the most is the satisfaction of seeing our young people succeed in their work placements/volunteer roles and achieve things that they may not initially have thought themselves capable of. The best feeling is proving to employers that our young people are just if not more capable of doing these jobs as any other.

How long have you been involved with bemix?

I began working with bemix in August of 2023

What is your role in bemix?

Supported Employment Specialist in Medway and Gravesham

What did you do before you joined bemix?

Before bemix I was working with North Kent Mind, a mental health charity helping support former rough sleepers in a residential environment. My work involved providing one-to-one support to those with substance abuse and mental health issues, all with the hope of giving the support and resources they needed to eventually move on into independent living.

What do you enjoy doing when you're not working?

I do a lot of different things in my spare time. I am an avid video game enthusiast and find them a great way to focus my mind when not working. I also in my off time practice creative writing and fictional world-building. Something to keep my creative juices going so I dont grow dull.
