Jon Adie - Director & Co-Owner

Jon, co-owner and director of Radfield Home Care Derby, Ashbourne & South Derbyshire holds a wealth of knowledge and experience managing business units for many blue chip organisations in the engineering sector.

Starting his career in the Royal Air Force as an engineer, Jon pursued his interest in engineering by moving to Rolls Royce where he stayed for over 13 years, working on a number of aircraft engine programmes, in both civil and defence aerospace, which included a 3 year stint in Singapore. He has also been employed as Head of Operations for one of JCB’s business units, before moving into the construction industry, specialising in offsite manufacture, for Laing O’Rourke, one of the largest construction companies in the UK.

Jon has a wide range of interests. He was a very keen rugby player for 20 years, and is now a guitarist in a local band and a keen runner, running with his local running group 3-4 times per week.

Since experiencing a bad level of care for his mum and dad, Jon wanted to make a difference in the care sector and raise the quality and standards of care provided. Jon explains,


“Investing and launching Radfield Home Care has been a large financial decision for us to make, but we are 100% committed to making a difference to people’s lives. Our eldest daughter is keen to progress into the health care sector, and this will become a great opportunity for her to become involved in.”
