Next up in our 'Meet the Team' series we have Kyra. She works on our busy Care desk as a Recruitment Consultant. Let's find out a bit more about Kyra and how she is keeping in touch with her colleagues whilst working from home. Read what she had to say below;
What does a day in your role look like?
A day in my role is usually fast paced and busy, I have a lot of direct contact with care homes, and agencies. As well as speaking to our agency workers trying to build and maintain relationships with them and helping them with anything they need. I also spend time resourcing for new workers and that includes putting them through the compliance process. My role also involves a lot of shift filling for the care homes and dealing with any general enquires.
What do you most enjoy about your job at Connect2Hampshire and why?
I enjoy speaking to different people every day and I like being able to help the homes to fill the shifts to ensure they have enough staff to care for the residents.
How are you finding it working from home and what is your top tip for home working?
Working from home is okay for me, although it’s strange not seeing my colleagues every day. However, it is a positive being able to work on different parts of my job without any distractions. My top tip for working from home is, keep the communication going to maintain the relationships you have built. Also making sure I have a cup of tea/coffee to hand all the time!
How do you stay in touch with colleagues?
I keep in touch with my colleagues through messages and phone calls. I have also been for a social distance walk with them which was lovely to see their faces again.
What Connect2Hampshire value do you most identify with and why?
Trustworthy is the most important value to me. If you have trust, then you know you can rely on somebody for help. I would like to think that our homes and agency workers trust us in this way and know that we are doing the best to help them and make the process as easy as possible for them.
What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
When I’m not working I enjoy going for walks, bike rides and spending time with my family.
