Work for us
The Advocacy People are an employer of choice. We know this because in our last survey 4 out of 5 members of staff said The Advocacy People are a great organisation to work for.
"The Advocacy People make a difference and I am proud to be part of a team that strives to improve people’s lives."
Our staff believe that The Advocacy People have a well-trained, professional workforce that responds to the needs of the people who use our services.
“My supervising advocate, team manager and colleagues are very supportive. I would describe them all as caring, thoughtful people who are always willing to help me if I ask for it. I love my job!”
“A very supportive organisation who share the values I believe in.”
“Knowing that we've made a difference and given someone a voice even if all desired outcomes are not achieved. Helping people to believe that they are valued and life is worth living.”
