What really attracted me to CAP was basically the opportunity to express my faith in the workplace, and just the opportunity to be able to challenge poverty and make a real difference in the community that I live in.
And I think one of the things that we certainly have here at CAP is that sense of a shared vision or a commitment or a sense of purpose to, yeah, to really try and achieve what we want to achieve and serve the people that we want to help.
I want to be able to do something that will make a difference to people’s lives, and even though I only do a small part of the process, I know I’m a conduit to that client becoming debt-free.
We’ve got such a variety and flavour of different churches across the UK, and I think it’s good to celebrate that, but to work not just with one particular denomination or one particular type of church, I think, I guess I just like the unity.
And I think just also recognising that workers in CAP really understand the importance of healthy relationships and life outside of work.
I’m a part of the local job club here with my church, and having flexible working hours gives me the opportunity to coach the clients that we have, and get to see them and work with them.
So, last night, my wife said to me, oh, we’ve got a parent’s evening for my youngest lad in two week’s time, what time can you do it, when can you go, and I think just simple things like that, being able to finish a little bit earlier to make sure I can get to hear about, you know, how my lad’s doing at school, yeah, it’s just a real blessing.
And it’s just great to know that CAP want to find a solution that works well for me in my personal life, but also what works well for me and my team in a professional capacity.
I would say that one of the biggest driving forces of CAP is being Christ-centered, helping those who need it the most, showing love, generosity and compassion, whether that’s outside of CAP to our clients or inside CAP to our head office staff.
My faith is the key part of who I am, and so, to me, the work that I do is for Jesus, it’s for His glory, so why would I do it without Him? So, to be able to connect with Him as part of my working day means everything.
And, yeah, you really do feel the difference, here we have the opportunity to pray for each other in the work that we do, to pray over the work that we do, and we’re actively seeking God in the decisions that we make.
If you’re the person that’s thinking about coming to work for CAP, do it. Get yourself onto the website, have a look around, see what’s there for you.
Firstly, come because you have something to offer. Secondly, come because you’re committed to the cause. And thirdly, come because you’re passionate about helping people.
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to be involved in an organisation that is supportive, that develops you personally and professionally, and that trains you towards what your goals are.
Yeah, I definitely recommend it. If you want to grow in your faith, if you want to make a difference in people’s lives, this is the place for you.
