Edward Banks

Haleema Zaman

Care Supervisor

I have worked in the health and social care sector fulfilling various roles for the past 23 years, beginning my journey in complex care services based in Tindle hospital and supporting the transition out of long-term hospitalised care and into community care settings.

I progressed from a volunteer role into project management and managed various commissioned projects across a number of areas predominately focussing on Buckinghamshire communities. I have trained in management and leadership and managed a variety of complex needs-based accommodation projects. In 2021 I took time out to provide care for family before finally joining Bluebird care team in Feb 2022.

Sammie Macknight

Care Coordinator

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 joined 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.

Leah Buckingham

Training & Recruitment 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.

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.
