My background is accountancy and property management having left Sheffield Hallam University with a Ba Hons. in Accountancy & Finance. In 2001 I acquired a 50% stake in SOS Homecare Ltd and in 2005 I bought the other 50%. Since then I have acheived my NVQ Level 4 Registered Manager Award, my NVQ Level 4 in Health & Social Care and my teaching qualifications. I am passionate about SOS Homecare delivering the very best standards of care to our service users.
I am responsible for bringing in new business and developing new links within the social care sector. I have previously worked overseeing the day to day care Management of contracts, ensuring the service is managed in line with CQC requirements. I have worked within the care sector for over 18 years in all aspects of domiciliary care services and supported living.
I first started working in Care in 2012 when I did a Level 2 Business Admin apprenticeship and continued to complete my Level 3. I then came across to work for Clece Care in 2015 as a recruitment manager, managing the recruitment for the north of England. Having transferred to SOS Homecare in September 2016, I have been promoted to HR manager, based in the North West managing the companys' recruitment and HR function so we can grow and develop. In January 2022, I was promoted to Director of Peoples Services.
