UNIT ASSISTANT Adolescent Protection Team (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 16 December 2014
The Children's Aid Society provides a variety of services for children and families who are in need of extra support, care and access to special services. As Unit Assistant in the Adolescent Protection Team a typical day included answering phones, arranging team meetings and/or family visits. We were constantly opening and closing files which put a tremendous amount of strain on the social workers. I was there to support them in a variety of duties as needed., I learned about child welfare, social welfare and also how paperwork can become priority over actual care when government is funding an organization. That was the hardest part of the job, feeling like my hands were tied because of bureaucracy. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there.The compensation and benefits are more than fair and the staff were offered the use of on site gym facility for a very minimal fee.
amazing place of work, very rewarding... it also has a gym on site.
