In my role, I’m the first person to meet the next individual walking in through the door. This is one of the most exciting parts of my job, as you just don’t know who you will meet!

What I like best about my job is definitely the versatility. From opening the post and answering the telephone right through to finance management and health and safety, my job can be anything and everything in between. It’s a very busy role! I work with incredible people who are friendly, warm and look after each other as a team.
Pablo Lopez Martinez
Once I finished my degree in Psychology, I was offered a six month internship (Leonardo Da Vinci programme) to work in a mental health service. I chose Thinkaction (formerly KCA) and I have never regret of taking that decision. Thinkaction gave me the opportunity of doing what I like the most; to help others.

I started my official career through two volunteering posts which included two years service as a Special Constable for Kent Police and an Honorary Assistant for Thinkaction (formerly KCA). These two volunteer posts taught me a lot of life skills and invaluable experience which has shaped the person that I am today.

When I first started working for Thinkaction, I was in the final year of my undergraduate degree and looking for volunteering opportunities to show to me what working in mental health would be like. The first thing that struck me when I started volunteering (apart the friendly welcomes from every single person), was how much of a team everyone was.
