Adele Shaw from St Asaph has recently (July, 2018) been promoted to Operations Executive at our Bangor office.
She joined us in 2015 as a carer and worked her way up the career ladder to Regional Manager and now to Operations Executive where she is responsible for managing care teams on the North Coast of Wales.
The 48-year-old said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Abacare since starting as a carer in 2015 and I am extremely grateful to have been promoted to Regional Manager and now onto Operations Executive.
“I will now be responsible for managing teams of carers and will ensure the company continues to deliver the highest quality of care to its service users to maintain its reputation.
“My first-hand experience of working as a carer and looking after service users is extremely beneficial as I fully understand how everything works and what our dedicated teams of carers need in order to be happy and stress free in their jobs.
“I feel I have really started to carve a career out for myself within the care industry and am looking forward to what the future holds for me. It is fantastic that a business such as Abacare is committed to promoting from within and providing its staff, who show outstanding contribution to their role, with career progression. I would really recommend the care industry to anyone else looking for a vocation in life.”
We’d like to say a huge ‘congratulations’ to Adele on her promotion. She is a much valued member of the team and it is great to see staff blossom in their jobs and move onwards and upwards.
Adele’s promotion shows that a job in care really can be for life and we’re always looking for caring, honest and reliable individuals to join our team. You never know, you might be able to work your way up to a management position too, just like Adele.
No experience is necessary to become a carer as we offer free, full training, which includes a company induction, first aid, information on dementia, health and safety, food safety, infection control, handling medication and moving and handling service users, with the opportunity to achieve Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) after the initial six months probationary period.
New recruits are given free uniforms, access to national staff discount scheme for all major brands as well as 28 days paid holiday, paid travel between calls and paid mileage.
We are also offering FaceTime or Skype interviews to candidates in order to meet the demands of the modern jobseeker. Its view is that busy people wanting a career change can ‘meet’ management via FaceTime or similar applications and find out about the roles it has to offer, as well as meet a couple of team members and, if they are about, also say ‘hello’ to a carer too.
Anyone interested in joining the team at Abacare should get in touch.
