Are you ready for a meaningful career that will allow you to help people? At Afea, everything we do is about the people we help. Our team are passionate about providing the highest level of care, and we’re on the lookout for people who share our commitment to making a difference.

We recently talked to Tania Haynes, who has been working at Afea since August. We wanted to know how she was settling in, and how she felt about her role.

What’s your role with Afea?

I’m the Marketing Coordinator here at Afea.

What made you choose Afea?

I was freelancing for roughly a year, and taking time off for myself. Eventually I got to the point where I was quite bored, and I wanted to do something meaningful with my life and not just another job.

I struggled with this thought, wondering if there was a place for a young girl with marketing talents and a project homes background. I went for a few interviews within the same project home industry, and even with a few with technology companies. But I ended up knocking back the job offers as they felt like ‘just another job’.

I then came across an advertisement from Afea Care Services. From the moment of the first interview, I knew that Afea was the company for me. My interviewer explained that Afea’s mission is to be the most trusted care provider, and the company vision is to empower people.

I felt on every level that this was the place for me. It resonated with what I was seeking and also the way I live my life.

What makes Afea the place for you?

Our Mission and Vision come directly from the CEO and ripple throughout the company.

Afea is also going through continuous expansion. And since the company has a focus on empowering people, many staff (including myself), are being given opportunities and encouraged to grow within the business

What would you tell someone who’s thinking about applying to work at Afea?

Do it! The bottom line is that jobs come and go. Many people choose their workplace based on the money or the title and then eventually the hype of a new job fades.

This is why so many people are unhappy in their workplace.

But when a company offers a culture that’s purposeful, it adds magic into your day. To bring happiness and love to people’s lives has changed me, and I always think of the quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson “Happiness is like a perfume, you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.”
