“Working within the Care and Support sector is such a rewarding role which brings new challenges every day to ensure our service users receive the best quality care from our staff.”

I have been the Service Manager at Marram Green since November 2018 but have worked there as a Team Leader for the last 8 years. I have spent the majority of my working life in the Care and Support field doing everything from care in the community to being Head of Care in a nursing home. I have worked in care since  I left school, I wanted to train as a nurse but when I went to enrol I was too young and the Matron said I should get a job working either with the elderly or children for a year to see if it was something I could cope with. I found a job as a trainee care assistant in a local authority care home and loved the role so much I never went back to enrol at nursing college and here I am today as a manager of a wonderful extra care service.
