Emma Holgate
Customer Supervisor

Emma joined Bluebird Care at the end of 2017. She started as a Care Assistant but very soon progressed to the senior care position of Care Champion where she worked with customers making sure that the company was maintaining the very highest quality of care.  When the role of Care Coordinator became available Emma felt that this would be an ideal opportunity to progress further and work in a full time office position. Even though Emma felt very nervous stepping in to this role, she was also so excited to take on the additional responsibility. She soon became comfortable in the office team and gained experience as the coordinator before returning to work directly with customers and their families as the Customer Supervisor when the position became available in August 2019.

Stef Cooper
Care Assistant Supervisor

I have been working at Bluebird Care for nearly 5 years now, prior to this I was a teacher in a school for young people with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties.  I started as a Care Assistant working from 7am to 10pm 4 days a week to fit in better with my young son.  While I was working as a Care Assistant I started and completed my Health & Social Care QCF Level 2, from here I then used the career pathway to become a Care Mentor and Coach; having new Care Assistant’s shadowing me in my calls and completed Observations and Medication Competency checks on other Care Assistants.  From here I started and completed my Health & Social Care QCF Level 3 qualification and completed a Medication Train The Trainer course to allow me to train Care Assistants in Administering Medication.  In October 2017 I was promoted to Care Assistant Supervisor for the west Berkshire team; this made me responsible for supporting and developing the already fantastic team of Care Assistants supporting our customers in West Berkshire.  Some of my duties include supervising, observing and ensuring that their training is up to date and valid. 

During my time at Bluebird Care I have completed Train The Trainer courses in End of Life Care, Personal Safety and Basic Life Support to further enable me to keep our Care Assistants’ training up to date.  I have also been trained and appointed as the Newbury teams’ Mental Health First Aider, having completed a Level 2 qualification in Understanding Mental Health to better help me understand how to provide support.  I have recently started my Health & Social Care QCF Level 5 qualification which will further develop my learning.

The Live-in Care team then match a live-in care assistant, introduce them and liaise with the customer and their relatives on a regular basis to ensure their care is well managed and delivers exactly what is required.  They then arrange and complete ongoing customer reviews and ensure regular supervisions and observations are completed with the company's live-in care assistants to ensure their practice is at the highest possible standard, their training is regularly updated and that they are happy in their assignment.

Angela Bilyk
Administrator

Having been made redundant from my job as a recruitment manager in the hospitality sector due to the COVID lockdown early in 2020, I was upset and feeling at a complete loss with everything going on at the time.  I had some experience in the care sector from years ago so I decided to see if I could return and came across an advert for a Care Assistant role at Bluebird Care.  I applied and from that moment on I haven’t looked back.  My experience in talking with Kim at the interview stage was fantastic and I felt so supported from that moment; I knew it was going to be the start of something new, a positive change.

I was offered a job and embarked on my training as a care assistant.  The training was great and a good chance to meet with other people starting out like me and we all supported each other throughout.  I was nervous at the beginning, but I needn’t have been, I continued to get support from Jane, all my care colleagues were amazing and the office team too.  I got such a positive feeling from helping the customers and making a difference every day.

Soon after completing my probation as a Care Assistant a role came up in the office for an Administrator – working in recruitment and finance.  With experience of both recruitment and payroll I applied, not thinking I had a chance with only 3 months’ employment behind me, but to my surprise I was successful and the next part of my Bluebird Care journey began.

I have been so fortunate and am so grateful for the excellent training and career opportunities at Bluebird Care.  I can honestly say I have never worked for a more supportive company and great bunch of people!
