Jeanette McEwan, owner of at-home care company Home Instead in South Lincolnshire, was keen to introduce her son Tom to the business when he began looking for a new career. Tom is now a huge part of the Home Instead operation and is really enjoying his new rewarding career.
Upon leaving school Tom went straight into the building trade working as a roofer with his Dad. However, he was inspired by the work his mother did and could see what a difference she was making to people’s lives in the community.
Tom was thrilled to be given the opportunity to work for Home Instead and has taken to his new role like a duck to water.
Tom commented: “I am really enjoying my role as community service representative as it is great to meet with members of our local community and see the positive impact we are having on the lives of others. Although it is quite a leap from roofing to caring, I am really enjoying my new career and am keen to get more and more involved in all aspects of the business.”
He continued: “Mum and I working together is rather fitting considering Home Instead is such a family oriented company. However, I am still a very independent person and am keen to build my own career at Home Instead.”
