"Fred Mairet - Owner - Home Instead Westminster"

Fred - Owner

Since Home Instead gave me the opportunity to join their team of owners and manage the office in Westminster and the city of London, I have been really touched seeing up close and personal what a difference that quality care can make to people's lives.  I love working in our community and I am very proud of the service that we are delivering.  The heart of our business is the team of wonderful CAREGivers who, like me, truly want to make a difference.

Prior to joining Home Instead, I worked in both the voluntary sector and the private sector here in London and overseas holding various Human Resources management positions and successfully led large teams of HR professionals in the UK and across Europe.
