Did you know that 5 of our office and community care staff started working with us as carers? There are plenty of career opportunities for career progression at Private HomeCare, check out what some of our team had to say about their own experience below.
Linda Chadwick, Training Coordinator, shares her career path within Private HomeCare with us.
“ As a Training Coordinator it is my job to check people’s training plans, see what training they need, if any HSE training is needed, creating timetables and also I am in charge of the accounts side of it all. I originally began working at Private HomeCare as a carer before interviewing for a role in client administration. I began on a part-time basis before moving to full-time and have now been on the administration side for almost 4 years. My favourite part of my role is actually meeting the carers and putting a face to the name. I do miss working with the clients as they can become like family. I would look forward to visiting them and having a chat. I miss just knowing you are making a difference. My work as a carer has been really beneficial for my role as a training coordinator. I can see things from every point of view.
We also heard from Mary Tuffy, our Client Coordinator
“I started working for PHC as a carer. In 1995, after years of caring, Elizabeth Nicholson and Anne Marks promoted me to a Client Coordinator, where I have more contact with clients’ families, and assess their care needs. Working 23 years with PHC, I have learned lots of skills, enjoyed all my experiences.”
Finally, Therese Enright, our Community Social Care Supervisor, had this to say about her own experience.
“I joined Private HomeCare as a carer. I left as I wanted to gain experience in a nursing home. Throughout all of this time, I chose Private HomeCare to do my professional training with, as I knew their standard of teaching was so high. Then I saw a job for Community Social Care Supervisor advertised with them and I applied. I was delighted to hear I got the job ! I am so pleased to continue my career with Private HomeCare for many reasons. Mainly I know the team have been there for years and that says a lot about any company I think !”
As you can see from the above there are a number of career opportunities at Private Homecare.
