Name: Jessica
Job title: Senior Manager for Long-Term Accommodation
Years working with Dublin Simon Community: 9

I have been working with Dublin Simon since August 2013, originally joining the team as a Flexi Support worker.  Over the last nine years I have progressed to a number of different roles, from Project worker to Service Manager.  I am now the Senior Manager for Long-Term Accommodation.

Dublin Simon Community has given me amazing opportunities for progression and, while there have been many challenges, I still feel very lucky to be part of this team.

Name: Niamh
Job title: Service Manager, Supported Housing
Years working with Dublin Simon Community: 6

I joined Dublin Simon Community in 2016 and have been lucky to progress through several different roles.  I am currently the Service Manager in Oak House.

Oak House has 32 residents of all ages living in long-term supported accommodation.  The residents have all meals cooked onsite and have access to a Primary Care Health Nurse.  There are lots of activities to support their mental and physical health.

A normal day for me includes check-ins with the team, chatting with residents, providing supervision, dealing with incidents, working with staff members on resident support plans and a range of other tasks that arise from the type of work we are doing here.  No two days are ever the same!
