OUR ETHOS

 

We don’t care whether you come into the office at 9 am.
We don’t care if you choose to work from home or not.
We don’t care if you work from your phone whilst walking the dog.
We hired you for a job and we trust you to get it done. Just let us know what you need to be successful in your role. And we will show up for you.
Life happens!
You don’t need to justify to us why you need a day off.
You don’t need to explain how sick your child is to leave early.
You don’t need to apologize for having a personal life.
Yes, we care about results but most importantly we care about you. We are all human and we are all adults. We lead people. We don’t run an adult day care centre. The success of this project will be down to you & how dedicated you are to the work. We want you to help us help more people to access the path of treatment they choose.

Finally good luck with your application and thank you for your interest in working with FAVOR.
