Magda began her journey with Ark as a Support Worker.
I moved from Portugal to Scotland in 2016 and knew I wanted to work within the Social Care sector. I’m passionate about people living good lives. It’s been a privilege to watch the individuals I work with grow and achieve their goals. My passion and dedication have been recognised within Ark and I’ve recently been promoted – I feel valued within my team.
I have taken on a Care and Support Managers role in the last year, which I have been enjoying. Since I started with Ark, I have always had the opportunity to invest in my career.
I have been involved in various projects and activities within Ark which allowed me to grow and progress and meet new people within our Organisation. I genuinely feel that Ark gives people the opportunity to invest on their career and achieve new and different goals.
