What’s your story Adam?
“I started working in residential care in 2009 as a Support Worker. After some years working in residential children’s services alongside Ben Jordan, in 2014 I became the Registered Manager for one of our homes in the South of England. I ran the home for 2 years and maintained outstanding throughout my tenure.
I had some time away, during this I was the Area Manager for a vastly smaller organisation, who upon my arrival, had just 1 outstanding home, 3 good homes, 1 requires improvement and 1 inadequate home. By the time I left the organisation to return to Compass this had improved to 3 outstanding homes and 3 good homes. (I am proud to say I played a part in improving quality across the board and implement better and more efficient systems!)
Since returning to Compass, I have been re-acquainting myself with the services I knew well previously. I have been learning about the many new services that we provide and meeting our newer managers that we now have. I’ve also been taking on management of four Regional Operations Managers”. These four managers overlook each ‘region’ we have our homes in, so that there is enough support for each individual house manager within that space. We work all over the country, so it is important to have a great network of communication and support.
“Due to my experience and knowledge in the field of safeguarding I have also been completing case reviews of investigations and disciplinaries to ensure service safety as well as best possible outcomes for children”.
What’s for the future?
“I will be focusing on ensuring that our homes continually strive for excellence in providing outstanding care for the children we are privileged to be caring for”.
