What it means to work with us
Working with Spark means joining a community of people who value and support your growth and well-being. Who care about each other’s struggles and successes. Who are committed to a common vision, culture and set of values.
It means being a part of something bigger than yourself.
Although I am a brand new caregiver on the Spark team, the genuine optimism displayed by everyone as soon as you meet them is inspiring. Job interviews are normally stressful, but Spark immediately puts you at ease with a still professional, but more friendly human approach. Spark Recruitment dedicates so much care into the matching process for each client, to ensure that it is not only the best situation for the client, but for the caregiver as well. In fact, the client is the one who makes the final decision on who their worker will be.
Spark has become so much more than a “job”, but a meaningful, financially stable living. In spite of the fairly isolating nature of this field, management acknowledges this and ensures opportunities for staff to socialize, get to know each other, and build a genuine sense of nurturing and community. The outcomes I experience after working with other Spark coworkers always reaffirms as the best places to receive care in Ontario.
Other companies often say you will gain a “work family,” without really meaning it- but with spark, you 100% do. Around the clock we are constantly encouraging each other, giving each other advice, passing on new information as it comes up, and driving our individual strengths to be the best caregivers we can be. Spark Lifecare has made my working experience more than just “work,” but truly a successful lifestyle
At Spark, you have the flexibility to choose with who you with, and when you want to work. One key trait is their priority to match workers with clients based on a variety of mutual reasons, which is important for long-term working relationships and authentic bonds. I have yet to work in, nor can I imagine any other frontline organization, I enjoy as much as Spark.
I spent this summer playing in parks, going to fairs, going on nice walks and swimming.. and got paid for it! Not only do they provide you with a platform where you will be matched with the client you are most equipped to support, but they acknowledge you for simply doing your job.. all the time. Spark is a very cool piece of the puzzle to making healthcare actually work for the people using it and providing it.
