What our staff have to say about their role at Karakan

Working as a mental health support worker with Karakan has been incredibly rewarding as it has supported my needs, provided the knowledge and opportunity to work in a role I am passionate about and ensured I maintain a healthy work life balance and be future ready.
Josh Edmondson
I have been with Karakan for a short while and during that time I have felt supported in my role. You always hear in job orientations that an organisation is “different,” and they will support you and every time it falls short, and I can say 100% Karakan is different.
Ryan Shannon
I was looking for a change in career and the opportunity to apply for Karakan presented itself through a friend of mine. I come from a security background so stepping into the role of a support worker seemed very daunting but exciting all at the same time. Karakan has given me the opportunity to work with a diverse group of people, each with their own challenges, needs and requirements. The support I have received from our team facilitators, support coordinators and the office has helped me on various challenging occasions and does not go unnoticed. Karakan has changed my perspective and approach to mental health, which has opened a multitude of possibilities and beats sitting behind a desk.
