Why I love working at SickKids CCMH
Prior to working at SickKids CCMH, I completed my placement at a treatment centre for youth and was often in contact with staff members from SickKids CCMH regarding placement opportunities for our clients. This was my initial foray into the organization and each interaction with SickKids CCMH was nothing short of professional and efficient. In 2016, I volunteered with SickKids CCMH and was eventually offered a position as a Volunteer Coordinator. Soon after, I was promoted to HR Payroll Coordinator. I genuinely enjoy working at SickKids CCMH, because they invest in training and development programs for their employees, promote from within, prioritize engaging with their clientele from a place of compassion and provide valuable employee benefits.
Child and Family Therapist
I was attracted to working at SickKids CCMH because of its strong reputation for excellent client-centred care. I knew I wanted to work with children and families, and figured there was no better place to do that. And I haven’t been disappointed! I continue to learn every day from the amazingly knowledgeable and compassionate multidisciplinary team. I’ve found supervisors and colleagues to be supportive and I’m so happy to be able to call many of them my friends. I’ve also appreciated ongoing training opportunities which have meant that I continue to feel interested and challenged by my work as I understand client issues in new ways.
Child and Family Practitioner
I joined the SickKids CCMH family last October. Taking the plunge joining a new organization is never easy. You never know what to expect. I had my hopes (and fears) of how it will be. All of those questions were answered as soon as I started. I was welcomed with virtual open arms by everyone. The ISFY team have been so supportive and really making me feel like I am a part of the team. This is a strong community I believe I can grow with. I love the direction the SickKids CCMH family is going and am happy to be a part of this journey.
