We are celebrating Tanya's seven-year anniversary as part of our nationwide #MakeaDifference campaign, which aims to highlight the vital role of care workers in communities across the UK.
 
Tanya worked as a mortgage advisor in Reading until 2009 when she moved to Maidstone. She joined the team shortly after we opened in 2011 and is now our second longest-serving Care Assistant!
 
Tanya was inspired to pursue a career in care following the tragic death of her two-year old daughter from cancer.
 
Speaking about her role, Tanya said:
I love being part of the team here at Bluebird Care and can't believe that seven years has gone by so quickly! Initially I found my role quite nerve wracking as it was a completely new direction for me, but since then I have grown to love my job.
 
Following my daughter's death from cancer I wanted to be a radiographer, but I opted to become a carer because it offers so many rewarding opportunities to make a difference to people's lives at a personal level. 

It is a pleasure to work with such an excellent team and it is very satisfying to know that what I do every day makes a big difference to the people I care for.
 
Clare , Operations Manager for Bluebird Care Maidstone, explains:
Tanya is a fantastic example of everything that we look for in a great Care Assistant – she is dependable, caring, patient, and above all she put's a smile on her customers' faces.
 
I know that everybody really values the fantastic work that she does, and the admirable way that she juggles her job while looking after her three young children.

She is truly a credit to the company and we are very pleased to celebrate this fantastic seven year milestone with her this week.
We are a family run business that goes above and beyond for all of our staff and if you would like to find out more about joining our team, you can apply here.
