Amy Baxter – Care Manager
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 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. Amy is currently studying her Level 4 Diploma in Health and Social Care.
“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.”
Emily Curtis – Assistant Care Manager
Emily started her career as a Care Practitioner at Perton Manor in 2014 and was promoted in August 2016 to Lead Care Practitioner where she gained more knowledge, experience and training. After 6 months being in the lead role, Emily was then promoted to Care Team Manager. Throughout, Capulet and Perton management mentored and supported Emily to ensure that at each stage She was ready for the role and building towards the next one.
Later in 2017 the position of Assistant Care Manager became available and Emily felt that she was ready for another step in her career. After having a successful interview, she was appointed the role.

With the right support, training and guidance Natalie has seen herself progress from Care Practitioner to Lead Care Practitioner to Care Team Manager to Assistant Care Manager. Natalie completed her Level 3 Diploma in Health and Social Care in less than a year and is now aiming to complete her Level 4 Diploma.
“I had no idea what career path I was going to choose, and when I saw a vacancy for Perton Manor I applied and have never looked back. I have had the pleasure of supporting the clients over the years, and then being able to progress and support the care team as well. Thanks to Capulet Care’s career progression opportunities, I have been able to climb the ladder as well as earn qualifications, and for that I am very thankful.”
