Finding good people to fit into our small and close-knit Hcsuk team, who share our family values, passion and commitment to our customers can for us, as for all businesses, be challenging. This is particularly with regard to the very important role of taking care of you, our valued customers, building the trust in our relationships and working with you to help and support you in whichever ways we can.
We have had a vacancy for the position of Business Development Manager since last September, and we have been working hard in the background on recruitment, whilst taking our time and enlisting outside help on this occasion, to ensure that we found the right candidate who shared our passion for making a difference.
So, we are delighted to announce that Jan Kelly joined the business last Monday to take on this exciting role with us.
Jan has a wealth of experience working In the care sector, having worked for Medequip, Essential Healthcare and Wallace Cameron, giving her a broad knowledge of both independent living equipment, first aid and consumables too. Jan’s key areas of specialty are pressure area care, moving and handling as well as specialist seating. On top of this, Jan is a qualified equipment assessor which we felt would help to add value to our customers, when looking for advice, guidance and support for specific residents needs
Jan also first qualified as an electrical engineer with Ford Motor company and has used those skills to transfer and work in a business servicing, maintaining and repairing care home equipment, helping to both expand the business but also working on the tools!
We asked Jan, what it was that attracted her to work with us here at Hcsuk and particularly in this role and this is what she said:
"When I saw this job advertised with Hcsuk, I knew I had to apply for the position. My ideal job was there staring at me, it’s what I do and I have done for many years I make people smile and for me there is nothing more gratifying than giving people I work with the ability to sleep, eat, drink, walk, talk or sit in the manner they want and deserve".
"Care homes are the lifeblood of our elder generation and those less able bodied, but sometimes they need assistance to gauge the right solution and the right piece of equipment which gives their residents independence whilst aligning to the safety and infection control protocols the homes have in place and need to adhere to".
"As a Level 2 Trusted Assessor, with a background in Engineering and Community Equipment Provision, as well as being trained by some of our most influential suppliers. I conduct concise assessments to ascertain what equipment would or could be used, and sometimes with a little imagination we can adapt equipment to suit individual needs".
"Hcsuk is a fantastic company to work for, and we all share the same goals, to give our customers the right advice, the right solution and always with integrity. We never overpromise, but treat all customers as they should be treated with honesty and reliability. For me this made the decision to join very easy and I look forward to being part of the team as well as bringing some smiles along the way".
When Jan’s not at work she loves walking her 2 Rhodesian Ridgebacks, Dexter and Ellie, enjoys spending time with her cat Flora, as well as supporting Liverpool Football Club, shopping and the odd glass of Prosecco! Who doesn’t frankly?
Jan joins us at a time when sadly she won't be able to meet you all face to face for a while, but is available on the phone if you need any help or assistance on 07968 994660 and will be in touch to introduce herself to you personally in her own unique style. (Look out for the postie!)
We warmly welcome Jan into our Hcsuk family and look forward to seeing her bloom and flourish in her new role.
If there is anything Jan can assist you with anything immediately then please don’t hesitate to contact her on 07968 994669 or by email [email protected]
