Lynne – Service Manager
“New challenges inspire me... in fact I get a real buzz from not fully knowing what the next day is going to bring!”
Hi, I'm Lynne. I'm a Service Manager with Real Life Options. My journey with RLO began as a support worker in East Dunbartonshire. As my skills grew, I was quickly confident enough to apply to become a senior support worker. I enjoyed the supervisory aspects and was then encouraged to lead and support staff - striving always to improve services for the people we support.
I've seen many changes, particularly as we continue to grow new services. For me, this is the part I've enjoyed most of all. New challenges inspire me... in fact I get a real buzz from not fully knowing what the next day is going to bring! I love every day to be a different day.
The reality of working in social care is that you have to think on your feet. Finding solutions outside the box is definitely my forte.
It's a privilege to work for and with the people we support, alongside their families, guardians and other professionals.
I've always been strongly supported along the way. I count myself fortunate to have made so many friends and to have worked for so many inspiring people - although how they put up with my shenanigans I'll never know!
