Meet the team
Jane & John Perry
Jane & John Perry have been a part of the Bluebird Care team since they bought their first office in 2007 with the Edinburgh franchise. Jane, who is originally from Glasgow, then had the opportunity to purchase the Bluebird Care Glasgow South franchise in 2012 and jumped at the chance to replicate the quality, passion and success from the Edinburgh franchise across to her home City of Glasgow. Quality and passion are the two main themes that run through the businessess and this has been reflected in the awards and commendations from the various organisations and regulatory bodies within the care sector.
Annually inspected by the Care Inspectorate, they are extremely proud of the ratings over the past 7 years, achieving grades of 6's (Excellent) for the quality of the staffing,management and care and support.
10 years and counting, they are still as passionate about delivering a bespoke, quality service now, as they were then!
Both of them had never been involved in the care sector, prior to signing up with Bluebird Care - Jane was in an accountancy role and John had been in sales and management - and both decided it was time for change; Jane comments:
We wanted a sound business model whilst at the same time something that made a difference in peoples lives... Bluebird Care's model of 'a Good Old Fashioned service' fitted the bill perfectly
Bluebird Care Glasgow South have a great team of well trained, professional, commited staff, who all go that extra mile to make sure that they deliver the best Care at Home service possible. We hope you agree!
Jane Perry has owned the Bluebird Care Glasgow South franchise along with her husband John since 2012 and is still as passionate about delivering the best bespoke, quality care service now, as she was back then!
Jane knows her business inside and out and has done everything from caring, to co-ordinating. Through her main role as Company Director for both franchises, Jane oversees both the Edinburgh & Glasgow offices, ensuring that the interests and wellbeing of all of the customers and staff are met and that both businesses run smoothly and effectively.
Since coming into the care sector back in 2007, I have seen many, many changes, both positive and others not so. For us and the sector as whole, the biggest challenge is recruitment of quality staff, who share the same desire and hunger to deliver the type of care they would want for their families and loved ones. We all want a quality care service, with the best people possible for a fair price and that is what I feel we deliver day after day. We have a wonderfully diverse, dedicated team of well trained people, some of whom have been with us from the start of our care journey, all sharing the same drive and passion to deliver a care service that they are proud of. I take a huge amount of pride and satisfaction at what we have achieved so far in terms of the awards and accolades, but far from resting on our laurels, our aim is to continue to improve where we can, invest in innovation, attract the very best people possible and be the first name people think of when it comes to needing a quality care at home service for either themselves, or a loved one.

HR and Training Manager
When I first moved to Scotland 5 years ago, I worked for a Recruitment company and this opened my eyes to the Care Sector. An opportunity arose at Bluebird Care as a Coordinator, which I applied for and was successful. I started with Bluebird Care in March 2011 and have not looked back since. I loved my role as a coordinator and in 2012 won Coordinator of the Year at the Scottish Care Awards. This was a very proud moment for myself.
I took a short break from the business to have my little girl, and have returned as the HR and Training Manager. This role is rewarding and enables me to do a job that I am passionate about. I get to work with all staff members in regards to their personal development and career with Bluebird Care, whilst being able to also work on projects such as Step Into Leadership and Lesson Plans/Observations. I enjoy developing new resources and delivering training and mentoring where possible. The other important role with job is supporting the management team and Directors with recruitment, changes within the business and absence management.
