And Relax…

As of last week, I am no longer the leader of my unit of the Organisation. To describe that as a relief is an understatement.

No longer do I have to deal with the politics of running a unit (well, directly at least).

No longer will it be a fight against a small group of self-appointed experts whenever I want to make the simplest change they disagree with.

No longer will every decision I make have to consider both the Students’ Union and Organisation HQ.

No longer will I have to panic over awkward training schedules, low retention rates and useless support structures.

I’m moving to Youth Work.  Now I just need to have a hyper-awareness of child protection, worry about how to help get a Youth unit back up to its former high standard, and fight with adolescents who want to be there, but don’t want you to think that…  But the adult staff work together, and most of the kids genuinely enjoy what we do.

Sounds relaxing 😀

About The WalkingPlasterDispenser

So who is the Walking Plaster Dispenser? Well, I'm a volunteer First Aider, working with a well-known First Aid charity to help out random people I've never met before (or, more usually, when) they hurt themselves. This typically involves walking briskly (never run...) around after people who are silly enough to do sports or some other suitably daft activity in their free time. In my spare time, I am a graduate engineer, working my way through a graduate scheme with a big engineering company.
