Vanessa joined Carewatch in 2013 as a carer. She had never worked in social care before having previously held a sales post in the automotive industry. Our HR Manager spotted her talents whilst Vanessa was on a government training programme in Basildon to introduce potential new recruits to social care. Vanessa quickly gained promotion to supervisor in 2015 and then in 2016 took on the role of Team Planner for the whole Basildon and Billericay area.
She is currently studying for her Level 3 QCF in Health and Social Care. Vanessa says “I love being able to make a difference to people’s lives, even sitting here at my desk in the office. I know how important it is to support our carers because I’ve been a carer myself and know what matters to them”.Back to our case studies
