Imagine if you could design your perfect job. What would that look like?
I [Rosie] have been working at Oxford for an amazing seven weeks. I’m reflecting on how Aoife and I work together and what we are achieving. Her with the lovely Irish lilt who helps me feel at home with her welcoming foresight and inclusiveness; putting care experience at the 💜 of our research. Not only am I using life skills: organisational expertise; artistic ideas; librarian experience and social media prowess; but very importantly I’m delving into my own remembrance of care experience past and informing our knowledge exchange.
There’s more! Training if I want it; getting to know some amazing people and outside meetings in the most unusual surroundings. It really is turning into my perfect job.
Some of our projects are still being negotiated and planned – watch this space! However, I hope you will be as excited as we are and join us this Monday 5th Aug for our very first #CareConvos on Twitter @ 8pm. A discussion about the best ways to support the education of children in care.
