Sue Deaville - Director
My story started over 10 years ago as a trainee recruitment consultant, I then went onto progress to a senior consultant, I was then given the opportunity to open a new start up branch which I grasped with both hands. Having managed 2 successful branches I decided to take the next step of my journey and along with Sam SaferHandCare was born.
We strive to create a welcoming and friendly environment where everyone is welcome and look to provide the best service possible to all.
Sam Baddeley - Director
I began my road to recruitment as a sales advisor where I naturally progressed from an outbound sale advisor to a field sales executive, due to unforeseen circumstances within my family I changed career and began my journey within the care sector as a support worker. This then lead me into my first recruitment role combining both my sales and care experience together. I then found my calling and established myself which led me to having my first branch manager role. Since then a lot has changed and along with Sue we decided to open our first branch SaferHandCare.
Sara Winchester - Branch Manager
I have over 10 years experience working within the health and social care sector, initially beginning my career as a pediatric healthcare assistant working with children who had complex care needs. After graduating from University, I undertook a care coordinator role for a complex care agency, I then progressed to the deputy manager and then the Branch Manager. I have gained a vast amount of experience supporting and coordinating packages of care for both children and adults with complex care needs. I have recently completed a Level 5 diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People’s Services. I enjoy helping others, making a positive impact and have found all of my roles within the healthcare sector rewarding. I love Tom Hanks, Fall Out Boy, Bao Buns and noodles. I enjoy reading, going to the theater and spending time with my family and pets.
I am an amateur baker and have aspirations one day to hopefully be good enough to go on the Great British Bake off.
Claire Smith - Health & Social Care Trainer
I have worked in the care sector on and off for 22 years. I’ve worked as a manager of a pre-school and enjoyed dealing with the tasks involved, as well as spending time with the children. I have also worked as a support worker for a client with severe mental health needs and learning disabilities.
I came to safer hand care as a care worker and have worked my way up to now become the health and social care trainer for the Maidstone branch.
I love my job role and enjoy training candidates to the highest standard, for vulnerable clients.
I am an avid collector of DC and Marvel memorabilia, and have 2 kids as well as a puppy, so I spend all of my spare time with them.
I look forward to progressing my career with Safer Hand care.
