Meet our Training Team
Providing friendly expertise and support throughout your care training journey
Head of Training & Dementia Trainer
I have been with Christies Care since 2012, starting in Carer Support for 2 years before moving over to the Training department. The parts I most enjoy about my role here are getting to meet different people and developing my knowledge. This enables me to provide the best guidance to the carers that we train. I have experience being a carer. My first caring role was in a care home for people aged 50 and above, all of whom had learning disabilities. It was very daunting at first but with support and training I found it very rewarding. I then moved into domiciliary care as a pop-in carer which was as rewarding yet totally different – being a lone carer for the majority of the time, meeting new people, in new places with a variety of different conditions, some of whom had families closely involved others that didn’t.
Training Co-ordinator / Administrator
I joined Christies in 2012 as part of our admin team, having spent the previous 20 years working in a laboratory (a complete career change).
I was excited to move to the training team in 2015 and feel I have finally found my true vocation in life. I find my role really rewarding, particularly the End of Life training, and every day is a new opportunity to make a difference. I love getting to know all our wonderful carers and helping to prepare them to make a positive difference to our client’s lives.
I joined Christies Care in 2009, as a booking co-ordinator within the Emerald Team. After 6 months I joined the Quality team as the quality and safeguarding officer and stayed in this role for 5 years.
Upon my return from maternity leave in 2016, I joined the Training team as the Care Certificate Co-ordinator. Previous to joining Christies Care I worked as a booking co-ordinator and carer for 2 years, so I understand how rewarding and difficult it is to be a carer.
Joining September 2020 I’m the newest member of the team and I’m really excited to start my learning journey in a bid to continue to provide our wonderful carers with the quality level of training they deserve! I’m proud to be part of the team.
I have 3 children and 2 grandchildren which keep me busy, but any spare time I have I like to socialise, keep fit and potter in my garden.
Training Team Administrator
I have been working for Christies Care for since 2005, having joined in May 2005. Over the years my role has been varied but very enjoyable. My work has involved me working very closely with our carers during their training and because I consider myself to be a people person I enjoy this part of my role very much. I have met many people from different countries and have learnt a lot about their cultures and how things in their country differ from here in the UK. Last year I joined the Training team as their Administrator and am enjoying being part of a very busy and professional team.
