"My Career program for all frontline employees in Service Delivery"
The My Career program provides an opportunity for us to better support you in identifying and working towards your career aspirations at Endeavour Foundation.
By understanding what drives you and what brings you happiness in your work, we can help you map your own path.
We want to give you the tools, skills and insights to shape your career and the support you need to make your dreams a reality!
There are many options available to you and your path will be different to others, but this is about identifying what’s right for you.
Knowing exactly what you want to do or achieve in your career does not come easily to everyone. It takes time, reflection, and commitment to seek out opportunities and work on your career development.
We’ve compiled tools to support the process, so you can identify your values, what you want to become, how you can measure your success and how you can achieve your goals.
The skills and experience gained as a support worker provide opportunities for career growth, development, and progression. Some of the pathways may include:
Become a Leader
You want to upskill to manage people and take on more responsibility.
You want to gain experience in another area.
Grow and Learn
You want to become the best you can be in your current role.
