As a qualified care manager with experience of successfully running large scale care operations, Richard has qualifications in both management and leadership in health and social care.
“I spent 10 years of my career prior to moving into social care managing businesses within the recruitment industry, however I always knew that I wanted to move into a more service driven sector and role, where my input would have a positive impact directly on people’s lives. My initial role in the care sector was as a registered branch manager of a home care service – a ‘hands on’ role, making a positive difference to individuals everyday.”
Richard was subsequently promoted to an area manager role, spending most of his day on the road and soon realised that the role was too far removed from the service itself, and took the decision to return to the service delivery that he’d loved from the start.
“As a registered care manager, I developed a true passion to want to open my own home care business in my local community – providing high quality person centred care and support services and offering exceptional employment and career opportunities.”
