Carlene Daniel

Care Manager

I began my Care Career in 2013. I started as a Care and Support worker,  making my progression to Care Manager in 2018. I started with Bluebird Care in 2014. Prior to working in care, I worked for 10 years at RAF Halton completing a variety of tasks. I thoroughly enjoy my job, no day is the same. I have met the majority of our customer’s which means  I know their needs and we have a great rapport. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and travelling to new places home and abroad.  

Leah Buckingham

Office Manager

I started working in care in 2002. Over the years I gained more experience and knowledge which led to me becoming a Branch Manager in 2007. I took some time out of care between 2008-2010 and again in 2012 to raise my children. I started working for Bluebird Care in 2014 as a Care Supervisor and quickly progressed to become the Recruitment & Training Manager. I have completed a Level 5 Diploma in Leadership & Management. I spend my spare time with my three boys and my family.

Caitlin Chambers

Care Coordinator

I started working in care at the age of 14 when volunteering in a residential home, where I continued to work up until I went to university at 18. Three years later and having completed my university degree, I worked for a short period of time in childcare, but soon found my way back to the adult care sector. I started with Bluebird Care in March of 2020 as Care Coordinator for the Aylesbury area, and since being with Bluebird Care I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know all of our customers and carers, and I could not see myself in another job role.

Sammie Macknight

Care Supervisor

I started my very first job in care at 18 and have stayed in the care industry ever since.  I have been working in the care sector for 8 years and joined Bluebird Care in 2015.  After working as a Care Worker for a couple of years, I left to have my beautiful daughter.  When it was time to return to work I could not wait to come back to Bluebird Care and soon fell straight back into it.  I then join the office team as a Supervisor and now could not see myself working in any other sector.  I love my job, meeting interesting people every day and making a difference in someone's life.

Paul Jones

Business Development Manager

I began my career in care working for Buckinghamshire County Council in 2004.  I have worked in various roles for large national companies and small private providers, with a long stint at Bluebird Care (Aylesbury) from 2011 until 2019.

I joined as Care Manager shortly after the company started, and thoroughly enjoyed seeing a new service with high standards of care flourish and grow.

I rejoined Bluebird Care to support the fantastic team in further growth and development, promoting the amazing work that our care and office team do day in, day out.
