First monthly #agincareer winner!

Published: Tuesday 8th March 2022

We are delighted to announce our first #Agincareer competition winner! Our Agincare employees have been challenged to create posts on various social media channels showing us why they love their job. By taking the time to write a compelling post and using our hashtag, Will Mitchell has bagged himself £500 in his next wages!

We surprised Will our winner by sneaking in to the office and handing over the winning cheque, needless to say he was delighted with his win:

Woohoo, awesome! Thank you very much, I’m pretty happy to be fair. I don’t normally win anything at all and I’m actually quite shocked that I was picked. I really appreciate it. Cheers!

Will is a Regional Recruitment Officer and is very passionate about his role with Agincare. We caught up with him to find out a little more about why he joined the company initially and what he is up to now:

I was training to become a plumber, but sadly the company I was working for went bankrupt. Instead of signing on to the dole I decided it was best I get another job. I was flicking through a newspaper and saw an advert for Agincare’s Weymouth Homecare Office so thought I would try my luck working in care as I wanted to help people.

I got the job and worked there for nearly six years – the best part was spending quality time with my clients and hearing all their interesting stories!

From care worker to regional recruiter

I wanted to broaden my care skills so I decided to work with people who had learning difficulties. This was a very rewarding jobs but also extremely challenging, and so after three years I made the decision to return to Agincare to progress.

I started working part-time with Agincare, part-time with my other job but then was offered full-time and a senior position with Agincare so jumped at the chance.

I haven’t looked back since and really appreciate the support I receive working here.

Here is the post that Will submitted. He already has plans to spend his winnings soon!
