Amy began her career in care at Perton Manor when she was 18. At that age she didn’t know what career she actually wanted but soon discovered that care was it and she couldn’t see herself doing anything else.
After 12 months of learning, Amy successfully applied for the role of Lead Care Practitioner. The management team however, having seen her capabilities, promoted Amy straight up to Care Team Manager where she became responsible for running shifts and managing others.
The more Amy learned about mental health, the more interested she became in the subject and, in particular, in medication. Juliet and her managers are very supportive of those who want to do well and they put Amy through medication training.
Amy now works occasional Nurse Assistant shifts, which she finds very interesting as she’s learning even more about mental health and medication.
In 2017 Amy felt confident enough and ready to advance her career further. She applied for the role of Assistant Care Manager, was promoted into the position and transferred to our sister home Woodford House to support the Care Manager there.
Within 11 months Amy was back at Perton Manor as Care Manager.
“Since filling in the application form for Perton Manor I have never looked back – it was the best decision I ever made. The relationships I have with the clients here are special and I’m proud to say that I work for such an amazing company. Throughout my journey here the management team couldn’t have supported me more and for that I am so thankful.”
