There isn't a typical a day which is a strength, as you will never be bored.

You will be exposed to family and logistical dynamics that you will not have encountered before.


It really is a stepping stone into the community sector.
Pros
Autonomy
Cons
A lot of travel

Spending time with a young person and being a positive role model in their life, at times had to deal with challenging behaviour and didn't get full facts on the case we were involved with. Restricted with time and money and found it hard to find activities around Monaghan. Very rewarding when you could see an improvement in the young person and you earned their trust.

Zero hour contracts. You don't work, you don't get paid.
Main office is in Dublin. Will not help you with any issues.

You don't know the other staff as you work alone with young people.

You report to your supervisor every fortnight.
Pros
No pros.
Cons
Where will I start.
