Meet the team
Nicola comes to the Care profession having worked as a Solicitor for over 20 years. In her profession as a Solicitor she was able to see at first hand how the lives of people could be enhanced significantly with the right care provision being made and just as importantly how the wrong care could hold people back.
With Bluebird Care Dudley, Wyre Forest and Malvern Hills, she is able to put into practice what she has seen in her career as a Solicitor. Her experience in the law also means that she has experience of running a business and a team of people, to ensure that everyone is working together to achieve the goal of providing excellent care.
Director and Senior Spider Wrangler
Adrian comes to the company having spent over 20 years in the legal profession as a Solicitor.
As well as years of experience as a solicitor he is quite tall, which can be useful in the office. He is also not afraid of spiders and he is therefore able to fulfil a vital office role; that of being able to go into the cupboard and to get unwanted spiders from the office. He can also handle a Daddy Long-Legs at the right time of the year.
Adrian can also make tea and coffee.
Every office should have one.
Ellen has been our Care Manager since the end of 2019. She has previously worked within the Bluebird network as a Registered Manager, before taking a break from care to explore other avenues. However, the lure of working in Dom Care was so strong that Ellen is now back in the fold.
It would be fair to say that Ellen likes to chat to people. That might be customers, their families, carers, the postman, the bloke who comes to empty the shredding bin...
Ellen's drive and compassion shines through in her role. Her starting point is to want to help people and to make sure that they get the very best of care and she knows that that means care from her and her team.
Care Supervisor and Trainer
Rebecca is our Care Supervisor and Trainer. Her previous roles have been in management roles in the cosmetics industry, however, two years ago Becky was looking for a more rewarding career and so she moved into a career in care. She was quickly promoted into a supervisory role.
We were therefore thrilled when Becky joined us here at Bluebird Care Dudley. She has quickly established herself as an invaluable member of the team and her good humour and infectious laugh have become most welcome additions to the office.
Becky also does the induction and training for the company. Recently this has required the additional skill of having to deliver sessions via online platforms, but Becky has adapted to this and has shown that she is more than up to the task and so has been able to maintain the high quality of induction and training sessions that we have come to expect.
Becky says "I am passionate about providing high quality, person centered care, which enables customers to continue with their chosen lifestyles in their own homes. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with Bluebird so far and feel lucky to be a part of such a caring and fabulous team."
Katie first joined the team in December 2019 and demonstrated very quickly that she was a very dependable team member, showing real dedication and hard work in the field. Earlier this year therefore, when the business was expanding and looking for a Care Co-ordinator, Katie was one of a number of very strong candidates for the role.
She has settled into the office very well, despite the unususal circumstances that we face at the moment, but her enthusiasm and ability to pick up new things quickly more than make up for the comedy error of having posted a letter from the office, back to the office and so while it was the loss of the customers that she had been visiting, it was very much our gain in the office, when Katie joined the office team.
Adrian Witt, Director and Spider Wrangler, said "It is great having Katie in the office, although I was not prepared for the frequent demands on the stationery budget, but these have been a small price to pay for the benefit of having Katie with us in the office."
