Family Support Worker in Calgary, AB

Lovely company for anyone who is interested in Social Services.
Care and compassion are a huge part of the work culture at Assure. If you have a big heart for supporting children and families through some of the toughest seasons they might experience it's a great job to have. That being said, burnout can be high depending on the clients and service demand. Job security is high at Assure as they are always looking to hire experienced workers and hours are flexible. I was able to work some consistent hours during the 2020 pandemic. However, even with flexible hours, it can be challenging because things change all the time! Sometimes you don't get your shifts until the night before because of cancellation.Most of the support work that is done requires extensive reporting that can take extra time out of shift work hours (sometimes 1.5- 2 hours) the time spent reporting is often unpaid. This can be very frustrating because you don't always have time to write them on shift. -Management is very supportive and helpful with conflict. However, they can be a bit unorganized at times and mandatory training can be last minute.- It can be a bit challenging to find community because you often work alone.-Your vehicle is your office, but you get paid KMS!!

Review
Assure Community Services is a good place to work if you are looking for part-time/causal hours or if you are working while in school. If you are looking to get a feel for social services, this is a decent place to start. The Executive Director is knowledgeable about Children's Services and the role of the agency. Management/Office Workers are often disorganized: emails are not always replied to in a timely manner, management calls last minute to organize/switch shifts. Things change often, so you need to be willing to go with the flow. Training is not provided other than a few hours of 'training' where they go through the company policies and procedures. Otherwise, you work completely independently with little to no oversight or assistance. This can be challenging if you are not confident working on your own. I would argue that there is no workplace culture - I always felt alone and I hardly ever got to work with others, if at all. The things I enjoyed about this job were the flexibility to make my own schedule, and the great youth I had the opportunity to work with. Otherwise, the pay was adequate, but not sustainable, and the hours were limited, especially during the school year when most children/families are busy during the day. As it is a casual contract position, there are no benefits. There were also no opportunities for advancement within the organization.

not bad
you work at your own pace, choose the shifts you want. The pay is not exactly competitive. This job is good for getting experience but lacks consistency in shift work. You are exposed to various aspects of the industry. I had had a reasonably good experience, but have heard of stories and various bad experiences with other staff. Employees are basically contract and have no benefits

They are extremely knowledgable of Children's Services and are very supportive to their staff.
Working at Assure is a supported position, one where you feel part of a team. They are all aware of their client base and can provide in the moment support if required.
