Bluebird Care Shropshire has taken on a new Care Manager and a HR Manager to help drive the business forward and provide better care throughout the county.
The care company, based in Bayston Hill, Shrewsbury, but also covering Church Stretton, Oswestry and the areas in between is growing quite a workforce.
Claire Flavell started her new role as Care Manager on July 1. Claire had been co-ordinator of the domiciliary care service for Headway Shropshire, a charity that helps people with acquired brain injuries.
She will be overseeing the day-to-day operations of the business, which provides Care at Home to elderly and vulnerable people to enable them to live as independently as possible.
She will also be overseeing all of the care staff and their training as well as helping the company, which has taken on 31 care staff in the last three months, to expand further.
Mrs Flavell, 43, of Shrewsbury, said: "I wanted to work with different client groups and this will be a challenging role for me but I think it's going to be really exciting and I'm really looking forward to meeting new people and helping to grow the business and spread the message of what we do in the community."
ÂAlso new to the team is Karen Jenkins who joins as HR Manager to look after the growing team. She is also turning her hand to organising events and was recently at the helm of the company's first drop-in tea party for Falls Awareness Week, which was attended by the local councillor Ted Clarke new Mayor Jon Tandy and supported by Shrewsbury and Atcham MP Daniel Kawcyzynski as well as many community groups.
Director of Bluebird Care, Ian Barnes, said: "I am so excited to see the team grow so quickly. I think Claire will be a breath of fresh air and she has fantastic experience in how to develop a business.
"I want to concentrate on certain areas in which Claire has expertise such as looking after people with physical and learning disabilities.
"Karen has also settled in well and is looking after the team and the Falls Awareness Day we held last month here at our head office was a great success."
