Job Title: Services Manager, Jigsaw Support
How long have you worked at Jigsaw Homes?
Just over 12 years having joined Threshold in 2008.
Describe your ‘typical’ day at work.
I’m an early starter so try to get some of the routine admin tasks done and out of the way. I also try to plan and prepare for the day ahead making sure that I’m ready for any meetings I have that day.
We’re currently working on some interesting projects including the plans to align the ‘inside out’ initiative with the local welfare provision in Oldham. This was driven by funds raised from the annual ‘sleep out’ which a number of colleagues have supported over the years. The end result will be that we will be able to continue to provide homes starter packs and which really makes a difference for those starting out.
Which aspects of the job really get you motivated? I’m really motivated by being around people who make things happen and I count myself lucky that I have a number of those who I work for and alongside. The last 9 months have been the biggest curve ball we’ve seen and the way people have adapted and continued to make things happen has been fantastic.
