Get to know Steven a little more with our Q&A!
How long have you worked with Rocky Bay?
Nearly three years. I’ll get my three year service award in April.
Tell us about your role?
I work in the Home & Community division as a Team Leader, managing two supported accommodation community homes. I have 19 staff reporting to me, who in turn help support our 11 (soon to be 12) customers.
My days can consist of many repetitive tasks, but every day ends up being different. With so many staff and customers, there’s always multiple tasks that need to be dealt with.
Tell us what you love most about your field of work?
I get the most satisfaction from seeing customers being supported to experience new things and to achieve their goals. Knowing that in some way I contribute positively to improve someone’s life and life experiences are great rewards in themselves.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Walking our two Labradors (Hamish and Rex) and spending time with my two grandchildren (with two more on the way!). My wife is also trying to convince me I like camping, so this is fast becoming our joint hobby.
Fun fact about you?
I do have a sense of humour that I like to expose to staff on a daily basis.
What are three things you can’t live without and why?
- My wife Jacky. She’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me.
- A good book – I find reading relaxing.
- Single malt whisky, as it’s the water of life and if you don’t like it you should persevere until you do!
