With over 14 years experience in healthcare, Clare brings a wealth of experience to the Dover & Folkestone team.
Before working in care, Clare worked in retail and decided to transition because of the positive work life balance a career in care gave. Clare's first position was as a Community Care Assistant, during which time she completed her NVQ level 2 in Health & Social Care.
Following this, Clare gained experience as a Care Assistant in residential, nursing, hospice and supported living settings before progressing onto a role as a Risk Assessor for a London based care company.
Clare first joined us as a Care Supervisor and worked in the positions Registered Care Manager at our Maidstone and Gravesham & Dartford Offices along with Training Manager before leading the operational side of the business.
Clare is passionate about delivering quality live in care services and developing high quality standards. She believes in investing in each individual team member and providing the support they need to progress in their roles.
Working within care is a heartfelt passion for Nicola, who joined the team first as a Care Assistant and then was promoted to the position of Care Supervisor.
After working as a Medical Research Supervisor for over 10 years, Nicola chose to work in care because she had a family member who needed care support in their later life and wanted to give something back.
Nicola leads our in house training in a fun and engaging way, aiming to inspire new members of staff as they start their journey with Bluebird Care.
She holds an NVQ level 3 in Health & Social Care along with holding a train the trainer qualification specifically in medication and moving & handling courses.
One tip that Nicola has for those starting their career in care is to never be afraid to ask questions as the team is always there to help in any way possible.
