Recruitment & Retention Co-Ordinator - Marie Morrison
Marie is responsible for recruiting and training new members of the team at the expanding business which recently relocated to Stubbers Farm in Blackmore. Having previously worked as a merchandiser and then as team controller for a national greetings card company, Marie decided that she was ready for a change in career direction. She explains:“After 15 years of travelling round the country I felt that I really wanted to work closer to home. Whilst searching the internet for job opportunities I came across Home Instead which immediately struck a chord as something that I would like to do.” “Initially I joined the company last June as a Caregiver which has given me a good grounding for my new role. I still like to get out and do some of the caring from time to time as I really enjoyed working with the clients”.
Sue Reid Administrator
Sue is working in-house with the Home Instead team and is responsible for managing the office admin as well as continuing her role as caregiver.
Having previously worked as a beauty therapist, and then as an administrator for an engineering company, Sue decided that she was ready for a change of career. She explains: “I read about Home Instead in a local paper and was excited to learn more about this growing company with a strong ethos of providing high-quality care.”
“I joined the company earlier this year as a caregiver, which I thoroughly enjoyed as it has strong parallels with my past-career as a beauty therapist; making personal visits to clients and offering care and companionship. However, I am really enjoying being able to put my organisational skills back into practice with this new role of office administrator. From my very first encounter with Home Instead, the training and support I have been given is second to none. To be able to enter into a new profession is fantastic in itself, but it is great to be given the opportunity for promotion and progression in my career too! “
Outside of work, Sue loves spending time with her 3 grown-up children as well as taking her dog for walks. She is learning Spanish, loves baking and even likes to paint china in her spare time.
