The best thing about working for Missing People is working with such dedicated, hard-working and friendly people.
I would describe Missing People as amazing, innovative, and employee-centred.
Three reasons to join Missing People:
1. I have never worked anywhere like Missing People. I feel so appreciated and supported in everything I do.
2. Missing People use innovative work to help support children and families everyday.
3. Missing People have amazing benefits such as the pension scheme and holiday allowances.
My role involves completing return home interviews with Children when they return from a missing episode. Professionals, Parents/Carers, and Children often feedback to myself about how impressed they are with the Missing People services. I am continuously told on a daily basis about how Missing People change people’s lives for the better.
It is difficult to write down my proudest moment of working at Missing People because these happen on a weekly basis. These include; when a child engages in a return home interview after being told they would not, empowering children and families to gain support when they need it the most, and helping to safeguard children so they are safer and happier. It didn’t take me too long to realise that Missing People is different from any other charity I’ve worked for. We do a lot with very little resources – and I’m constantly humbled by the scope and value of what we do. I love coming into work each day (and not only because the staff are amazing!) – it’s so rewarding to contribute to our role as a lifeline for those missing and their families left behind.
