Director of business development
My name is Lucy McCormack, I am the daughter of owners Tracey and Kevin McCormack.
Working within my family business is something I am incredibly proud of and passionate about.
Throughout my childhood I saw my mother and father work incredibly hard to build a community home care service that could offer people the very best quality home and live in care support, whilst remaining in the comfort and security of their own home.
My role here at Bluebird Care involves managing the day to day business of our 6 franchise locations. Alike any care organisation we have the amition to grow our quality service so that we can assist more people in our local community to live safely, happily and comfortably within their own home.
My role involves communicating with all of our staff members both those in the field and those whom are office based. My team makes communication very easy, as we have a well established open, honest and friendly culture. And we are all brought together by the common aim and objective 'To offer the highest quality and dignified home care service in our local community'.
Finance and Accounts Manager
I have been at Bluebird Care since 2014 and I am fortunate to love my job and be a part of an ‘outstanding’ team. My role is more than a “traditional finance” role, which makes it very rewarding role – I get the opportunity to meet customers and employees and it’s amazing feeling knowing that as a team we have made a positive difference to someone’s life and been there to support them – may that be our customers, their families or a Bluebird Care employee
My role involves scheduling the care visits to the customers. Responding to queries from care staff, customers, their families and other health professionals.
I was brought up by two wheelchair bound parents which meant I lived in especially adapted accommodation and regularly socialised with residents with all different types of disabilities. From a young age I would assist with the residents at social events, outings and general popping in to see how they were. This eventually led to me doing voluntary work with the elderly and infirm which I did for about 10 years.
I started working in a residential care home around 20 years ago. I was first interested in working in care after seeing the excellent care my grandfather had while he was residing in a nursing home on the Scottish island of Bute. I knew from then on that I wanted to give care back to those who needed it and since then I have always worked from the heart. Around 15 years ago I began working as a domiciliary care worker and within months I was moved to the position of a Care Coordinator and have been ever since.
I have only been with Bluebird care for a matter of months, I was attracted to working with Bluebird as I had worked in areas where Bluebird too had care packages and knew that they had an always sustained a good reputation. I love the fact that Bluebird is a family run business and their passion and drive would always be for the good of the customers and staff.
I believe that you should treat those how you want to be treated and a happy care worker makes a happy customer.
Support Care Supervisor
Having seen Bluebird Care Redbridge’s ethos of excellent quality care, and my 15 year intermittent service time in domiciliary and live in care, Linda felt that Bluebird Care Redbridge would be a perfect fit.
Linda has always enjoyed the variety and flexibility of the care assistant role as it fits in well with her lifestyle and family commitments.
While working for Bluebird Care Redbridge Linda has completed both her Level 2 and Level 3 NVQ in Health and Social Care.
As a support care supervisor, Linda’s duties include carrying out spot checks and medication observations on care assistants in the field, reporting back to the office issues that may arise in situ regarding care assistants or customers, supporting care assistants in the field and keeping MAR Charts updated. Linda is also involved in the on-call system on a rota basis which includes dealing with any situations that arise during that time.
Recruitment & HR
Having worked for Bluebird Care on an Ad-Hoc basis since 2014, I recently took on a full-time role looking after the HR & Recruitment side of the business. My role ensures the smooth running of the recruitment process and looking after our new starters once they have joined by ensuring they are trained and mentored efficiently, and they feel confident within their role.
We pride ourselves on the natural caring and compassionate nature of our care staff which is just one of the many key attributes I look for during the recruitment process. I often get the chance to go out and meet with customers which enables me to put their needs and interests at the heart of the recruitment process.
I really enjoy my role and being part of the supportive & friendly team here at Redbridge (Epping & Harlow).
